I just had a thought... apologies if this has been mentioned already...If this pet can be bought for gold and auctioned, could this be a way to launder gold selling? I'm envisioning a situation like the following:Person goes and contacts a gold seller and works out a transaction. The buyer is told, "OK, buy a pet and sell it in the AH for 100,000g. We'll buy it." Could Blizzard really prove you made a deal with a gold seller and paid real money to make that transaction vs. you got lucky and sold the pet to someone with more money than brains.Any thoughts?

You can already sell linen cloth on the AH for 10,000g so that a goldseller will buy it. If anything, cutting Blizzard in on the deal makes it riskier for both parties - more of a chance someone is looking at these transactions.
