I have to agree, I generally prefer TeamSpeak to the built-in voice
chat.  That said there are times when I like the in game voice chat
since it's easier to taunt opponents on the public channel and also talk
with teammates in game.

I think if voice activation was added it would probably end up using
more bandwidth on the game server since with voice activation it's hard
to get the level right and either it's on half the time or it's not on
at all.
