I think this would be nice, so long as it isn't enabled by default.
I've always enjoyed how FreeBSD shuns the feature-creep that infects
other operating systems. Wouldn't it also be nice to have automatic
printer discovery, automatic WEP/WPA network setup via a nice GUI, etc

FreeBSD's documentation is really wonderful, and newbies should be
encouraged to read the rich documentation to find out how to (among
other things) enable automounting. They'll find out many other great
things on the way.
