For the site itself that's totally fine, and the status page is separate as it should be, too.

This is fine-ish...

In case of network issues affecting their proxy, being able to change your configuration to allow direct traffic would be really nice.

Fair. Some service recently had their status page hosted on the same server that went down, that was funny.

I guess it's like diversifying one's assets - you put your status page elsewhere than on your own infrastructure.

Discord's status page is also down haha

I'm quite surprised Discord's status page is behind Cloudflare. I thought they were using statuspage.io.

They are, but that subdomain is proxied through Cloudflare. If they'd set it to just DNS then it would have still worked.
