i dont think a friend request is that much of a tedious thing to sort, and i dont think it would change the number of adding you as a friend for most people. yeah it would probably get annoying for staff and pros, but i don't know, i think it might be the same in the end when you add a friend to send a request, as opposed to being like "hey, im adding you to my list" if anyone cares.
i'll just sum up and say, i don't think it's a bad idea.
