"It really needs to learn the user's behaviour and add regular sites automatically - but that wouldn't solve the search query formulation problem and would, furthermore, add an element of "Do I trust this addon that much?""

That's the problem with most if not all adblockers, privacy minders, script blockers etc. The average user needs one tool to do the job and it needs to be as simple as possible to use. Otherwise they just turn everything off the first time they realise their banking website or Amazon or Ebay no longer work properly.
