/agree with Reno, this would suck.
Fairly obvious SEO implications:
-Increased traffic for pos. 6-10 -- I have nowhere else to go, so I may as well click something that's still on the screen.
-Increased traffic for long tail -- I'm not seeing what I want and I can't go to page 2, so I'll try a longer query.
-Total devastation of what I think of as "deep searches," searches where the user may very well want to actually browse more than 10 sites matching the query. This will hurt my niche a lot, many of my higher-traffic terms generate traffic even on page 3 or 4. I personally have enough page 1 rankings to survive, this might even help due to my first point, but I'd hate to be a new webmaster in my niche if this goes live universally.
