That sort of makes sense, as you don't want to force any particular browsing style on your users as I imagine this feature could get abused rather quickly.
Personally though, I think for most internal site links this should be the case, but all external links could pop open a new tab/window and it shouldn't tick off too many people. When reading articles and discussion threads, I'm just in the habit of "Ctrl-Shift" clicking to open links in a new background tab regardless.
