Sending iMessage without phone no

Just added someoneís email to my phone list. Donít have a mobile no, just email. And i noticed the option for iMessage & Facetime popped up.

Yes. Possible.
My Wi-Fi only iPad doesn't have phone no.
But I can iMessage and FaceTime to the iPad with the registered email address.

It will also receive iMessages to your phone number so long your iPhone and iPad is signed on using the same Apple ID and that you have opted to use your phone number as a iMessage ID.

Settings -> iMessage.
Turn off iMessage.
