It's already been done on XDA (unfortunately, it's only in 5% increments and seems to be occasionally off compared to the battery saver reading). Microsoft should add it as an option, especially on the WXGA & 720p devices that will have enough pixels to produce a nice percentage within the battery icon.
I've probably taken a hundred screenshots. I took many in preparation for an article I ended up stalling on, I sometimes send screenshots of funny things I see that wouldn't translate over to a link, and it's sure as **** useful when you're trying to convey a point across on a forum or to a developer you're giving feedback to.

EDIT: WPCentral staff, you should cut out the oversensitive swear filter. It makes things look worse than they are - I typed the opposite of heaven and got four asterisks that are commonly used to denote the f word.
