Do you want it to show up in the list on the bottom, or make it
installed by default instead of the standard landsat URL?
Are you sure, you can handle the traffic?
The list of wms services  can be edited and is loaded by each wms
client on startup. However you cannot force people to delete an entry
from their menu, once it has been added it to their bookmarks.

There are some security issues when the browser has too much control
over the client software.
If you extend josm-remote this way, I suggest you fork it. (No offence
intended, might be useful for some.)
