I have looked and it appears that the callsign lookup button really doesn't do anything, unless another application is also installed, like JT-alert.
Why not add some options, for lookup sites like Hamcall, QRZ, (for the paying subscribers) or HamQTH?

the WSJT-X call "Lookup" button searches in previously stored entries, saved by the "Add" button. The retrieved data is the grid square. The functionality is designed for EME and other VHF, UHF, or microwave modes where grid squares can be critical to making a QSO. Particularly with EME, the grid square is needed to calculate the Doppler shift between yourself and a DX station. The function is not intended to do any remote lookup of information from web services etc..
