This has been in place for some time.  From :

"Add item to your default watch lists: This port is not on any of your 
default watch lists. Click this icon to add the port to your default 
watch lists. This icon appears only if you are logged in."

Granted, you don't see this icon if you are not logged in.  The system 
could be altered so you see this icon regardless.  If clicked, and not 
logged in, it could prompt you to login, or register.
