A big fat -1 to this from me. If I want it to open in a new window, I'll use "open in new window" from my browser.

Actually you should avoid using the target attribute, WordPress is still using the XHTML 1.0 Transitional DOCTYPE but when they make the transition to XHTML 1.0 Strict we will be in trouble because there will be no longer a target attribute. This can be resolved by using rel=external and replacing it with JavaScript.
