Am I too paranoid to think that this combined with Battle.net Balance is a precursor / opens the door to buying gear from Blizzard for cash?

"In addition, with the upcoming launch of Diablo III, players in certain regions will also be able to use their Battle.net Balance to acquire items from the game's currency-based auction house."

Already planned for Diablo III, with the addition of "Black Market" windows in WoW with items auctioned by NPCs ( ie Blizzard) instead of players isn't that a step to that direction?
Yeah, I don't know if I like the sound of this either. But we haven't heard everything yet though.

Let's say it's just an auctionhouse with auctions by NPCs that you can bid/buyout on, isn't that just a messed up vendor? Instead of buying an item for X gold, you can bid on it and maybe win it for Y or Z gold. Sounds wierd. Sounds like there's more to this that we don't know.
