Some parties feel that it is a bug because users will pick a new, crappy search engine based on bad advice. Some parties feel that it is a feature because some search engines have better privacy policies than others, or have better ways of providing results, and so on.

Sure, they're both attack vectors. I note that to configure a new search engine in most browsers, you need to type in what is effectively a URL template.

Also, we don't make decisions based upon what people feel in the IETF -- we decide based upon rough consensus and running code. Is there *any* implementer interest in what you're describing?
