I appreciate that they're at least not creating new gold - it's the Pet Store version of the card game items.On the other front, I'm quite anxious to see how this will play in the illicit gold market. History suggests that providing a legal equivalent to an illegal activity will draw away the consumers, but will also drive the instigators to desperate acts. The unique factor in this equation is that WoW is not their only market. With any luck, they'll write off WoW as unprofitable, drop out of the account-stealing business, and move onto some other game. If not, they're going to get quite a bit more aggressive about it, and I don't think that will end well for anyone.
