It never occurred to me that they would allow you to be an Alliance Tauren or something and I really doubt they would do that (without a whole "Benedict Arnold" expansion!). I would bet that either:A) Every Human would become an Orc, Nightelf-Undead, Gnome-Tauren a'la Orb of Deception race-links. This, however, breaks a lot of race/class restrictions as crsh pointed out.B) The more likely option, they'll let you choose whichever race you want that supports your class. So I could change my draenai shaman into an orc, tauren or troll while a horde shaman could only choose draenai.The real issue and the one that Blizzard mentioned had yet to be worked out, is the gear details. It's easy to transfer rep based on the race-links but what about the really difficult faction-reps like Winterspring? Will my Winterspring Saber turn into the new Ravasaur Raptor withouth having to grind the faction? I can't think of anything that's truly faction-exclusive. Even the Chicken Egg from http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=3861 is lootable by horde. Most everything else can be transferred over the Neutral AH one way or another. Then again, they could just wipe that stuff. That's easier.
