wait a minute... I thought buffs and debuffs with the same effect didn't stack anymore. So there will be some effects that won't work due to them being overdone by another effect.... right?

Some, yes. DoTs always stack, though. Imagine if you're in a 25 raid, and you have 5 affliction warlocks. If each one tries to put up Curse of Agony, Corruption, Siphon Life, Unstable Affliction, Immolate, Haunt (which puts up the extra Shadow Embrace debuff), and drains life, then none of the other characters can cause any status effects whatsoever; fireballs won't burn, warriors won't deep wound, shadow word pain fizzles, stings don't work, etc.I imagine it would be rather difficult for this change to have any meaning in a warlock-less environment, but don't quote me on that.

It depends on the buff/debuff. Dots are considered debuffs and Hots are considered buffs, both of them will stack though.

Maybe (didn't read all responses, so sorry if someone mentioned this) I believe a mod auther might be able to display as many debuffs as he/she see's fit, one obvious idea would be to add a number somehow on multiple debuffs to show how many are up thus maximizing screen real estate.
