With the upgrade of Onyxia to a level 80 raid in the next major patch, what are level 60 max guilds supposed to do about raiding BWL? Isn't a cloak made from Onyxia's scales basically required for half the boss fights because of shadow flame? Any idea if there will be changes to keep BWL accessible to these players?

I'd be willing to bet Blizz will cater to L60 only guilds they same way they cater to L*9 twinks... they won't. They've moved forward with the game... and (I would imagine) expect the player base to move with it.I'd be interested in running L60 raids at level being as I never had that option (only started playing three months before TBC was released and didn't have a max level toon till halfway through that expansion), but wouldn't expect Blizz to maintain that if it didn't fit their purpose. Hell... the original Naxx isn't available anymore since they re-purposed that.

Not just 60 max level guilds, but pretty much any guild at 80. My guild runs BWL about once a month and you generally need at least one cloak wearer to pick up Nefarian during the shadow flame. However this would be the only time Blizzard would have directly cut off content (and thus now achievements) so I think you could be sure that either they'll do away with that mechanic, or that you'll still be able to skin Onyxa for scales. Remember, scales aren't BoP so you could have a raid guild pass on scales.With the mount being a rare drop this will probably be farmed long after it's relevant content too, so scales will probably always be available if you keep your social networking channels open on your server.
