As for sharing a dongle between logins, no way. There's no way a company would let anyone else have access to the key sequence. That'd be the dumbest thing ever and basically make them useless from a real security perspective.
Theres a list of all the ones that accept the authenticator I'm talking about. The secure stuff isn't shared, the login authentication is all passed through to the company that makes the cards, which in that case is verisign.

Just like all the physical blizzard authenticators currently use a company called vasco (look at the back of your authenticator, it will be marked as such).

Blizzard isn't hosting the authentication servers, vasco is. Blizzard may be paying them to use it though, I dunno.

I don't think you know much about how these things work
