Appear offline on battle.net - feature long awaited by botters?




Have you ever thought "darn, my friends keeps bugging me while I'm bottling, but If I change my status to DND other players can notice what I'm doing"? Well... You probably won't have to worry about that anymore! 

Blizzard has just announced new feature named "Appear Offline", which haven't been fully described yet (Blizzard will share more details in upcoming months), but the name of this feature pretty much speaks for itself.

What we know for sure at this moment is that "Appear Offline" function will allow you to... well - appear offline (to your battle.net friends) and will work across World of Warcraft, Diablo 3 and Starcraft II.

The difference between this feature and regular "do not disturb" is crucial, because if you set your status to DND you automatically look suspicious to other players cause of the tag next to your name (DND), while Appear Offline function will likely only affect how your real I.D. / battle.tag friends can see you on their friends list.

The only question is: what does this sentence means: "We’ll share more information on the availability of this new feature in the months ahead" - perhaps Blizzard is aware of the advantage that botters can take of this feature and want to implement some security system? Or perhaps they don't care that much about the botters and just want to test this feature before releasing?

What is your opinion, do you think this feature will be useful for botters, or maybe blizzard will do something to prevent abusing this function?
