Horrible idea due to various aspects of the game's mechanics. There are times you need to STOP ATTACKING ASAP. Continuing otherwise can kill you, or perhaps your group.
Any abilities that have a cast time(at least in AR) also slow you down, again this can be bad if you do not stop this if you need to get out of an AoE charging up in PvE.
Finally, there are several passives that focus on hit counters that buffs the next attack once the counter hits a certain number. You will often want either a specific ability to use the proc or hit a specific mob. Autoattacking will cause you issues with this.
In other words, while it may be nice for you, it will not make the game easier in the long run and you will gain a lot of bad habits.
This is not meant to be played exactly like previous MMOs. Adapt or not, but quit asking for the game to adapt to you when it comes to mechanics.
They only want you to shout something they feel appropriate when you feel like shouting. They don't care about the package, just the gift wrap. They don't advocate peace. They don't care if you speak with hate. They want only to change the exact words as if the WORDS are what makes discourse hateful or distasteful. They think the avoidance of certain words is gonna signal an education. ~ Penn Jillette
