It's a very fitting idea for Nolan. This is what Nolan most probably intended, although I think he purposefully did not include too much proof of that in the film to allow that ambiguity for the fans.
Thanks for sharing that. Hopefully that puts it to rest. Its a crazy discussion anyways. Even if he continued to be Batman for 2 more months, but in that time, did nothing note worthy....who cares then? Just so that our imaginations or our expectations aren't let down? In Nolan's world, this Batman quits/moves on anyways, so whats the difference.
