Quite so, actually.

Out of office says: I am likely available, but not for physical meetings.

So if you just want to book a phone call, video conference, or chat session, 
that's an entirely viable slot. If you need to talk to them face to face, it 
is not.

BTW: That is also why this status has a location attached to it (or can have).

It would be awesome if we could make use of that, as well.

But just having the out of office status is already quite good.
