Its an old game/dungeon master's trick from the days of pen and paper roleplaying. You intentionally make references to things that you have no immediate attention of ever actually doing anything with, and keep them in a notebook. Later on when you come up with something cool and need to weave it in, you go look at your notes to see which ones of the hooks you tossed out earlier can be made to fit.It makes it LOOK like you had been planning that moment for months, when really you just came up with it last week. Blizz does the same thing. Just look at all the unfinished story arcs out there, all these DMF like one off comments that seem to hint at bigger things that never materialize. They're feeder hooks, easy places to latch onto later if the need arises.
