Dont have a problem with his identity being exposed, its not like he has any family left to go after. Ex girlfriends maybe but they havent been revealed in the Nu52 yet.
Except that don't most people know that Nightwing is the ex-Robin? If his identity gets exposed then Batman's does as well.
No, not really. It's public knowledge that Bruce Wayne is funding Batman Inc. The relationship between Bruce and Dick is slightly different in the New 52; Dick was much older (already in his late teens) when Bruce came into his life and he became Robin, so there wouldn't be years and years of Dick Grayson as Bruce's ward to raise suspicions. Because of that (age and brief duration of time), it would be easy for Bruce to argue that, since he was already funding Batman, that he recommended to Batman that he take on Dick as an agent for Batman Inc. due to his personal history. Bruce isn't really compromised any more than he was if Dick is outed as Nightwing.
