I think the request is that @mentions are merged in with home_timeline. There may be desktop clients that support this functionality, for all I know.
The risks are that some users receive a lot of @mentions, and their home timelines would be unreadable. So, it would have to be an option. Secondly, it would open another spam vector that would have to be addressed. We have considered this feature on www, but I don't know whatever happened to the idea. -John Kalucki http://twitter.com/jkalucki Infrastructure, Twitter Inc.
