It would be good for our achievement section, as well as, perhaps foster teamwork (or at least discussion) if people notice that someone is using more resources.

Perhaps even an extra xp bonus if you finish certain quests without any (for higher level quests... No point for the lower level ones).

What do people think?

Slippery slope. What about non-pot sp options? Would it show how many sp you got back from babble, abbot gloves, con opp, or torc?

Now what about hitpoints? Showing sp usage above and beyond normal through pot usage warrants knowing who needed the extra healing/buffing. What about damage dealt instead of just kills?

There are a lot of stats they probably could show, but it seems to me they would generally be used to make fun of supposedly gimp players (your damage per HP lost metric is too low!) or other epeen waving contests. Some would use for good (seeing the importance of a DR breaker) but more would use for grief.

Look at how many people brag in an irritating fashion about kill count. More metrics in a game can kill the fun.

it also wouldn't show the "why". Perhaps some caster is spamming heals left and right when it's not needed, or the wizard blasting everything with heighten/max/emp again when it's totally unnecessary.

I don't care for other used items. What for??!
I do care if I can give someone pot that healed me through RAID and used some pots!
I could use stat like what pot and how many were used.

Soloing, say, Epic VON4 without mana pots is an achievement.

Soloing the same quest using 30 mana potions is unimpressive.

I'm all for more data in that window.

Damage Taken
Healing Given
Kobold Still Hates You: Amount of mobs that hated you when they died ;)

etcetera

Maybe not an XP hit, but I'd love to see it.

This is one of the more ridiculous ideas I have heard so far...

This might be depressing to some of us. Gonna say no.
