That seems way too narrow to keyword, and also it's just bad vigilance, so why make it?

Well, it's vigilance for abilities as well. My objection is it'll be tricky to see at a a glance whether an opponent has blockers or not.

But it does kinda feel like that one "Aha!" trick isn't really enough of a leg to hang onto.

The idea of the mechanic is to be vigilance+, where you can proactively activate tap abilities without leaving yourself vulnerable to attacks. It's an ability keyword, so it's just as narrow as menace or hexproof etc.

I think the better variation is one that goes full topsy-turvy and changes the concept into an evasion ability of sorts:

> Dreamwalk (This creature can't be blocked by untapped creatures. Tapped creatures can block it.)

The whole environment should be build with it in mind since it changes the nature of combat in a fundamental way.

The same at least partially applies to prepared, but there the payoff is much smaller in comparison. To me, it seems like an "easier to miss / confusing vigilance" which doesn't sound ecstatic.
