Any time you see a loading screen (ie travel between continents, or to and from Outland) you're transferring from one server to another within the same group. So the addition of BC gave each realm more servers to handle more people. Also they added more landmass for the players to spread out in. If they kept adding landmass and didn't up the population caps then the population density and therefore apparent population would go down.

The problem is they don't spread out. They move to the newest areas. So they are packing more people into a smaller space. Most of the population moved into the relatively small part of the new areas hence the hellfire syndrome of the BC release. I never experience much of the camping phenomenon in wow until the expansion. But just ask anyone trying to do the skettis prisoner escort or gathering motes or any number of other popular activities if the realm needs more people :)
