I imagine a cross-realm raid interface would alleviate some of the (perceived) problem. Blizzard suggested that idea was problematic because of raid IDs and whatnot; cross-realm communication may fix that. (e.g. Just like with the Dungeon Finder tool, a pop-up appears on the screen that notifies the player that the raid instance is continuing, initiated by the raid officers or what have you.) Whatever the answer, I think Blizzard can overcome the technical issues and get a Raid Finder implemented. Also, I never considered casuals to be raid-hungry. If someone takes time out of their life to attend a scheduled raid, I don't think I'd call them casual. Maybe not hardcore - I hate that word - but certainly not casual either.

As someone who considers myself casual, let me say that I much prefer a scheduled raid to waiting around for three hours trying to get people together for a naxx run. I can just log on, get going, and be done in time to do other things with my day. Sad thing is, I'm not exaggerating about that three hours either. >_
