Blacksmithing, tailoring and leatherworking need a sub-skill for repair- it could be learned at an initial cost- and then people could make money on repairs, rather than hard earned gold going into the ether. They could also make "repair kits" to sell on the AH that would give one- shot fixes. Engineers can craft repair bots- why not the rest? Why can't blacksmiths "scrap" armor-likewise with lw and tailors-breaking them back down to component mats like engineers can do "mining" robotic mobs.

Yes, engineers can craft repair bots, but they serve only as convenience, i.e. a raid/party member's bags are full and they need to empty them, so I pop a repairbot. Or if we're in HoL and that stupid DK has died 50 times from the whirlwinds, and all his armor is broken. Of course, I've already used the repairbot 5 minutes ago after the last 50 times he's died, so we have to wait a few more minutes.And keep in mind that repairbots cost us mats, and we don't get any profit from dropping them. And they don't sell on the AH. Ever.

A nice thought but not going to happen if only because repair bills act as a major gold drain in the player economy as opposed to the gold faucet that is quests/mobs/gray drops. That's also one reason the upper level riding skill costs remain high, to drain gold out of the economy and prevent inflations.
