    I think it'd be a good idea..
    Now that it's stable on Safari 3 for Mac/Windows, it could probably be done for MobileSafari too..

    Even if it's not a plugin, couldn't someone edit /etc/hosts and change common ad servers to 127.0.0.1?

    Edit: I edited my hosts file, no luck..
    I don't get why either.
    Does Safari have it's own hosts?

    Honestly I don't usually get pop ups.

    Me either, I mean embedded ads.
    The Adblock article currently in the top 10 reminded me, and I thought it'd be a good idea, since most probably use MobileSafari a lot.
