Long quest chain-seeker here. It would be great to play a nelf druid who secretly works to overthrow King Varian (or at least have him declared incompetent), and have the ensuing months of working closely with various like-minded alliance and horde cause us to, at the least, accept each other and understand each others languages. I don't want to switch completely to horde (too many friends alliance-side) but neither do I want to maintain such an enormous barrier between us. As a druid perhaps I'd like to see an expansion of the Cenarian Circle, or more cross-factions like it. As a nelf hippie tree-hugger I'd like to see less faction hatred. And although I really respect and admire taurens, if I'd wanted to be one I'd have rolled one in the first place.

If you'd like to see less faction hatred, Final Fantasy XI is thataway --->. No, really. It's one thing to help a player of a different faction as an OOC thing (I do it all the time). But there is way too much bad blood between both sides to allow that sort of thing, not to mention the massive pvp imbalance and confusion unfettered faction jumping regardless of race would cause.Remember that the sole instance we have to date of an Alliance character switching sides in any of the games is the Sin'dorei, and it took an unbelievable amount of fast talking on the part of Sylvanas and Lor'themar (the Deatholme quest chain in Ghostlands pretty much lays this out). Even then, we were not really accepted in the Horde until the Warsong Offensive. And if you really think it's plausible that your Nelf druid is such a special snowflake that the Orcs would forget all about that business in Ashenvale (or that your druid would forget all about the Orcs KILLING YOUR GOD) and welcome you, a known traitor to boot, with open arms--I don't know what to tell you except thank god such a thing is not in place or it actually would break lore beyond all belief. I don't think anyone who is advocating this quest based thing for individuals to become faction traitors is really thinking it through.
