So, it was stated that we would be able to fly "anywhere". Considering that some of the new content is out in the Great Sea, will we be able to fly across that now? Or will we still need to take boats/zepps? I'm sure it would be much faster to take the boats...

What I'm guessing Blizzard plans to do is make the island zone only accessible via Deepholme. Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend, and the Draenei/BE starting zones/Outland are all on entirely separate servers, so unless Blizzard is planning condensing all of these areas onto one server (which is unlikely) you'd still have to take boats/zepps (which cleverly hide the fact that your character is actually transferring between servers going from, say, Auberdine to Stormwind or Orgrimmar to Undercity). It's also possible that Blizzard's keeping all of the 80+ content and zones inaccessible to people without the expansion despite its technically being in "old-world" Azeroth, and making all of it accessible solely via Deepholme would be a solution to that problem.
