I like it. The true power of shortcuts comes from the target website having a useful search interface or fuzzy selection interface.
If a monk can confidently predict that the thing(s) she wants to point people to will be found by entering
[google://yet another perl conference]
[c2://You Arent Gonna Need It]
[wolframalpha://10 choose 3], then having the shortcut is a win.
But if the monk has to navigate to the desired target page every time anyway, she can simply copy-and-paste the URL, and having a shortcut is not a win.
Update: The shortcut has been implemented. Note that it is wolframalpha (or wa), but not wolfram.
What is the sound of Windows? Is it not the sound of a wall upon which people have smashed their heads... all the way through?
