Exactly. It is again creating something that some people will feel obligated to
use. 

Also, it would lead to hurt feelings, or thoughts of "did they even see my
thanks?", if the recipient /doesn't/ then utilize the "thanks for the thanks"
button.

(I do grok the good potential of the idea; but I can also clearly see the
downsides. I'm just noting them, in case you or anyone else hadn't. :)
