They must have because I leveled 85-90 with it and it would always port me and i would then enter a stealth mode that seemed equivalent to my regular Feral-enhanced Prowling ability. Only ever had a problem if I ported into a mob, as there is a slight delay after the port b4 stealth (though the port doesn't break stealth so this isn't so much of an issue when I was already Prowling). With glyph of prowl and a simple macro I was able to keep stealth up nearly permanently, open with ravage on every target with little to no down time, and had terrific movement and placement utility.

One thing you said is correct: DB does not take you out of combat; but I did still find it useful for making an escape. Port 20yds and stealth-dash gives me a great head start and helps me avoid pulling more mobs in an already sticky situation.
I stand behind Displacer Beast as an excellent talent option for Feral leveling.
