If I hadn't thought she was Talia before these instances, I was certainly convinced by them far before she actually reveals herself.
These movies are full of a zillion instances of this particular thing, I guess Nolan loves doing it.
Here's another one from the Dark Knight:
Lucius: What's this I hear about a secret government telecommunications project?
Bruce: If you don't mind, Lucius, I'm playing this one pretty close to the chest.
*Scene after Joker tries to kill Dent in SWAT van and is subdued*
Harvey Dent: *seeing Gordon is alive* You do like to play things close to the chest!
