Hmmm... Sounds quite interesting.
Maybe the concept could be extended, like...
- It gets more difficult to scan for a ship if the intended target gets closer to a star (the radiation from the star masks the ship's signature)
- With cloakers it's the other way round: The 'shadow' in the star's corona give their presence away to highly-trained scanners with decent equipment.
... but, as with every 'nice to have' idea, it may be, say, 2015 before it's even considered for implementation.
