Viewfinder block - Grrrrrrrrr

I just got in from doing some long-exposure shots down at the shoreline during & after sunset. On my last shot of about 10, I realized that I forgot to put the little viewfinder blocker on - DOH! I forget to put it on about 20% of the time - it's maddening.

So for those of you with considerable knowledge of the workings of digital cameras, would it be possible (and a good idea) for the camera engineers to have a built-in viewfinder block which gets automatically actuated when the camera is put into Bulb mode?
