Possibly to threaten ...c4 after White plays Bb2? (Especially if the other bishop is on d3).

You meant black will attack queenside through b-c files after ...c4?

Could it be a ploy to invite white to castle kingside while black will overntually go 0-0-0? Then initiate a pawn rush on the white king later in the game?

This line is covered in Zuke 'Em, from page 243, where David writes "[...Qb6] aims to use the undefended nature of the B/b2 to get c4 in." (hey - I was right!) and then provides an antidote.
