I think one thing that should be mentioned..... Since any class can play a smith (from the brawniest warrior to the most reclusive mage) there's no reason that you have to think of blacksmithing only in the traditional sooty mode. What's to say that a mage, using his hammer as a focus i suppose, could craft the most beautiful piece of armor for those that require it without mussing his robes? Or, especially with the sockets, have a smith be seen more as a artisan than a worker. There's also the fact that the pieces of armor that you create as a smith are "magical", else they would be grey or white quality. There's a ton of room for other types other than the brawniest warrior, paladin, or DK to take up smithing... and justifying it in an RP sense seems more important than ever considering the pair of it and JC are the best minmaxing combo for any class these days.

A good foil for this would be Enchanting, actually. Play a mage or a priest who crafts only the finest weapons and armor for the modern hero, then imbues them with the power of the Arcane or the Light that they might impart some measure of strength to the new owner in their great quest.
