Allow Apex to call Salesforce REST and SOAP API's without a Remote Site Setting

Apex & Visualforce

An increasing number of solutions are emerging where Apex is being used to consume the Salesoforce REST or Web Service API's. These might be time saving applications that interact with the Metadata API or tools that help move data from one org to another by using the Salesforce REST API. Having to ask users to configure the approprite Remote Site entry for a Salesforce server inhibts the ability for users to get started with such tools and raises unneccessary questions, when the end points point straight back to the Salesforce servers.

Please allow callouts to Salesforce API's from Apex to be permitted without a Remote Site setting.
