As much as I could see the benefit for it. I do not think this will fly for browser vendors. They are all currently trying to simplify the UI and minimize it. There is also the balance in between introducing a new UI feature with the number of times this (HTTP Auth) will be used. For example, Firefox removed the RSS icon (by default).

PS: not advocating for any sides of the issue.
