Yes.  But the problem is the guy is EVIL.  Think about it he wants this guy to
roam around for
a long time being seen but can't be heard or helped.  :)  Just that very fact
would cause
the guy to go insane :)  But yeah if your trying to like hide a person then
could add that
for measure.  Makes the oblivion spell look nice huh?

I tend to agree but once you attack that person can clearly see it.  It does
make a bit
off balance though for a assassin who has the spell.  But there are ways to
it through wards and the like.
