Being able to hide the dock icon would be much appreciated. My primary personal VPN is Tunnelbear and its nice just having it up there in the menu bar and not taking up space down in my dock.

Strongly agree… Background applications should follow the convention of being visible only in the menu bar, like DropBox, Adobe CS, Living Earth, etc., and be hidden from the App Switcher and Dock.
Up vote on this from me.
I would prefer the App Icon to only appear in the Dock when summoned, rest of the time the Menu Bar icon is sufficient. Or at least can we have an option in the preferences to hide the dock icon
