Add a private note compose button on displayed Profile Pages?

When I visit the profile of a someone in my network, I sometimes have the urge to send that person a private note.

To do this I have to (i) click out of the profile and into my own account menu, (ii) find the Private Notes sub-tab and open that, (iii) click on the tab to create a new note, then (iv) compose the note and (v) send.

If it is possible to have a Private Notes tab appear in the profile title, then the aim would be to be able to send a note with a direct (i) click, (ii) compose and (ii) send sequence.... without needing to leave the profile page.

Would this be a generally useful feature? Is it technically possible?
