This is kinda way out in left field, but what do you guys think about removing the whole trackback feature?
I think it's pretty safe to say that 99.9% (if not more) of trackbacks are spam. The average user has no idea about them (no one really uses them anymore as they require manual user input of a special trackback URL) and I think the general public would be better off without all the spam they cause, Akismet or not.
For the people that really, really want it, a plugin could be used.
