a bounce means success, in the case of a telephone call or sale delivered via a different domain
I couldn't think of a scenario where Google would welcome a high bounce rate where a referal is involved. Doesn't mean there aren't any - i just couldn't think of any.
btw - I'm suspicious Google Chrome has ramped up a lot of extra intelligence involving usability that could be used in the knew algo.
