I don't think I agree with the designation of the Yamanaka clan technique in Naruto entry as Awesome But Impractical. Rather than claiming it's next to useless (as in - not suitable for combat) I think it has more to do with infiltration. You do not risk yourself by breaching the perimeter of the location, you find a nice and safe place where nobody has looked, then you send your own mind at the sentry or someone, and voila - you're already inside without exposing yourself to danger. Still the fact that Ino used it in that situation does not excuse her - she definitely had no idea on how to do it right.
