Me neither, but we have quite some users using it.

Yes, this seems like the simplest and most uncontroversial change to  
get blocking and invisibility done. It takes a lot of the burden off  
the client, and allows you to do these operations in one atomic  
operation (instead of determining + requesting + changing + setting  
the privacy list). It's also a lot easier to implement this on the  
server side (sounds trivial even).
