I think this, if added would cause a HUGE outrage in the community, as someone like me who as been playing since alpha, I would not update (although I rarely play on 1.8+ anyways). Along with this, this does not fit in with the game, and just isn't put well together in the idea, would just be a major annoyance and would ruin the games playerbase.
tl;dr: Doesn't fit in, would cause an outrage, would lose part of playerbase.
