Yeah that's exactly the point. Of course, this rarely happens in comics and when it does it has to be temporary.
Blake is pretty much the combination of the essence of a "Robin" who's destiny is to become Batman. And it always makes me chuckle to hear Letterman or somebody like that who has basic knowledge of the mythos and Nolan's trilogy be like "so you're going on to become Robin in the next movie!?"
