You've (plural 'you') decided to add an oft-request feature in such a fashion that only a vanishingly small portion of the player base will even have the oppurtunity to use it, and with such costs and limitations that very few of those lucky people will ever elect to pursue this new ability.
Asserting that this is a game balance issue is specious, as far superior functionality is already available via out-of-game means and is in widespread use. Promoting an in-game alternative that is strictly inferior to the out-of-game system in every single way will do nothing but drive more people to AIM/ICQ/MSN.
