Default "Facebook Chat" Setting Found in Account Settings area?

Please Login to Remove!

I doubt I've come across anything new or exciting here, but I did do a quick search and couldn't seem to find any reference to it in the forums...

Anyway, I was just going through some of my Facebook settings from my PC and I came across a setting that I found curious (see attached screen shot). Under the Application Settings, I clicked on Edit Settings on the Facebook For BlackBerry Smartphones application and received a prompt for some permissions settings:

1. Access my data when I'm not using the application
2. Login to Facebook Chat

What's #2 all about? Facebook Chat...BlackBerry? I know there are some third party apps out there for Facebook Chat, but something within the Faceook app would be awesome. I'm curious to know if anyone has noticed this setting before, and what exactly it's for. The fact that both words are capitalized makes it look like an official title. I've racked my brain (and Google), and could not figure out what this setting could possibly be for. A preview of something to come? Probably not, but I thought I'd ask...anyone?
