Blizzard isn't going to freak out and ban us if this flag is sent to Blizzard at login and they see your account doesn't actually have the pre-order, will they?

It's not like you're actually flagging your account as upgraded to Cataclysm (that information is only on blizzard's servers, you'd have to do far worse to do that), all you're doing is telling the client that you're supposed to download the cataclysm client, it'll probably happen anyway if you try to log in on Dec 7th, just now you're doing it ahead of time.

Found an answer to my own question:http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=27495540292&sid=1&pageNo=1#15Blue response from Customer Service gives this same advice and says it is okay even if you're buying the game at retail.

Sorry, I must have missed it. Where did he say "even if you're buying retail"?
