I agree that it is advisable on safety grounds to sometimes turn your lights on during the day in heavy rain - obviously not to help your own vision, but to enable you to be seen clearly by others.
However i think that automatically linking the lights to the wipers is a step too far and not really a good idea.
The times that rain is heavy enough to seriously reduce visibility during the day is actually quite few and far between, but on the other hand, the times when it is raining in bright sunshine is relatively common. Would you really want your lights to come on in conditions like this?
Each to their own though....some people will probably think it is a good idea.
