I'm not sure it is. Lots of people open a new tab for every new thought
with no thought of "do i already have youtube open?" why would they when
it's so much cheaper to make a new one than search. This also results in
a feedback loop, the more you do it the harder it is to find your old
tab! Sometimes I find myself with 3 of the same video open because I
wanted to watch it again. I've seen all sorts of people do this.

I'd had this thought. Seems like a fine way of clearing the UI but a
little inelegant. Not necessarily for or against, it just seems like
there might be a less obvious solution that works better.
Here's another relevant question that I think we should keep in mind
when trying to answer this design question (any design question really):
does youtube even fit in the sound menu? is it shoehorned in?
