I'm willing to bet there would be no lasting demand to support it. Yes, I've heard all the people lamenting about the 'good old days', but the truth is the 'good old days' weren't really all that good. Nostalgia sadly is never what it used to be.

NAILED IT! I'm a bc guy, so while its interesting to go back and see all these old instances, I don't really care about them. Most of the pre bc raiders in my guild always say "it was fun, lots of fun... Please don't let me ever see them again." The beauty of WoW is you're never "perfect" you always need that one enchant, that one piece of gear, that one last reputation to exalted and when you're getting close, when you can taste it? Blizz wipes it clean. At first glance this sounds horrible and tragic but then you put it in perspective, while you were getting close to perfect there were another 11 million people becoming perfect too and the challenge is gone.Thats what would happen with classic servers, everyone keeps running and running until t3 isn't an achievement to wear, its a class uniform, sulfuras isn't a legendary, its the neo retro lolherald. Once you get that last piece of gear you sit back and say "Wow that was fun, I got it all... now what?" And you realize for the first time that you climbed the mountain and broke the game for what it was, a mountain that's growing taller with every step you take, the mountain isn't the goal it never is, never was, its looking down at that one ledge that you barely made, that one called Kael'Thas or that jagged peak that you slammed your head against, Bloodboil. That's something I don't want. Its when Wrath comes out and every one is on the same page, when everyone is in greens and blues, you realize that mage who beat you on dps? It was only because of his gear and you're watching his get his face eaten by Wolverine men. I'm looking forward to the reset.
