We thought about oneboxing all WordPress links, but the problem is, we can't tell it's wordpress without issuing a http request to the target URL.

Oneboxing only works for a truly whitelisted, known set of URLs.The minute you have to HTTP sniff, it becomes unworkable.

Well blog.stackoverflow.com seems like a natural one, but there is also wordpress.org and blogspot.com –  tzenes Aug 8 '10 at 23:51
