Edit: Hrmm no, that won't work as we don't have the unitID only the name.
It also won't work because (and I quote the documentation of UnitID about player name): "This must be spelled exactly and will be invalid if the named player is not a part of your party or raid. As with all other UnitIDs, it is not case sensitive."

GetFriendInfo won't probably help either, because it would suffer from the same inconvenient inconsistency about not noticing when someone goes offline in time.
