New wp-config constant for Google Chrome Frame

I'd love to see a new constant option created to easily enable Google Chrome Frame support in a WordPress website.

Basically if the constant is defined true:
define('CHROMEFRAME', true);

Then the Chrome Frame tag would be returned in wp_head:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">

I'll gladly submit the patch for this, but wanted to get feedback on the idea first

This sounds like Theme or Plugin code to me..

Plugins already exists for it, just seems unnecessary for what it is doing. I would guess a good majority of WordPress administrators would like an easy way to enable this on all of their sites.

While I can see the attraction of allowing easy support for things like Chrome Frame, I don't think core is the place for it. Which third party plugins, preferences and meta data do we decide to support or not support? Do we start adding constants for other specific things such as iPhone viewport size, IE image toolbar settings, author/copyright info?

IMHO even not Plugin Domain, this can be easily edited in the theme. I'm very much for closing this as wontfix.

Closing as wontfix. The theme should implement it, or a plugin be used to supplement it.

Google Chrome is now out of beta and Nacin wants support for it.
