+1. Two things:

a) I might not have any use for their package interactively, in which  
case it has the potential to slow down IPython for me if it's always  
loading them (less of a problem if they're only loaded on import from  
the interactive prompt).
b) Even if I do use their package interactively, their extensions may  
not fit my brain.
