Um... V'Ming? That's why they do gear resets. The person with quest blues/greens will get gear that's basically as good as most blues and entry level epics now. Heck, I was levelling a shadow priest with some friends so we ran a bunch of scholo, strat etc... I got several blues that, pre-TBC, were VERY nice. They were totally outclassed by level 57 outland greens. Same thing will happen in WotLK... those of us in Kara/badge gear will probably keep most of it through 72-74, newer players will regear in the starter zone in Northrend and be fine.

"I got several blues that, pre-TBC, were VERY nice. They were totally outclassed by level 57 outland greens. "That's at the heart of my plan. I'm going to sit and wait for the Northrend drops to start appearing in the AH and gear myself up that way before I head over. Of course I'll poke my head through the door straight away, but I'm going to sit tight for a week or two before hitting it seriously and by then I should be nicely geared-up.

Don't do that... save your money. This'll be no different than BC. A 58 or 60 freshly geared with quest greens from the old world can go to Hellfire and replace almost all of his or her gear with no problems at all. Wrath will not be different.Oh, but there are more epics now? So what? Epics from the original content didn't get replaced till near 70, or even in Tier 5 raids. A few choice items didn't get replaced till BT, and Wrath will be the same way. That Season 3 gear isn't going to be replaced at 71, but it probably will be at 78-80... there is absolutely no reason to assume that Wrath item progression over BC gear will be any different than BC over original was.But, hey, if you want to wait for the AH to flood with over-priced drops from Wrath. Go right ahead... me and everyone else that jumps right in will be more than happy to sell them to you for 10 times what they're worth :P Then you'll feel all warm and safe, zone over, and replace them with quest rewards within a week.
