Can and should Stack Overflow automatically rewrite bit.ly links?

It would be nice if SO kept a list of common url shorteners (there's a Firefox extension related to shorturls that contains a pretty extensive list, I don't remember its name though) and then, when used in a question/answer, replaced the shorturl with the real url or at least displayed the real URL in a tooltip when hovering the link.
