It should be pointed out that Battle.net is a player matching service with some bells and whistles (and if it's anything like Gamespy's 'service' it is or has been poor). Thus to claim it's an integral part of the game is a bit of stretch.
Blizzard should have gone the route that Bioware went with Neverwinter Nights: make the authentication server separate from the (optional) player-matching service. This would permit third party player matching services without them having to circumvent authorization checks.
