I don't like it. I discourage it and the guild Code of Conduct says anything that is ToS violation can get you kicked immediately. That being said, I have several husband/wife duos who log onto each others accounts for various reasons although they never raid as the others toon. I also have a guy whose best friend plays his alts, never his main. He hates leveling professions and the friend loves to level, hates to raid. In both cases, it works out for them and for us. The thing about these situations is, when they log on and an officer or myself is on, they immediately notify someone that they are not who usually plays the toon. I've gotten so I know the quirks of the people playing so even if Dean forgets to tell me he's playing Gregg's toon, I know it's him. Honestly, we had more problems with siblings getting onto each others accounts than with husband/wife or adult friends. I would like to see Blizzard allow spouses to have access to each others accounts without it being a ToS violation. I'm not sure how that would be enforced. In theory, if you are playing together, there's a certain degree of trust that you wouldn't mess with the main character. I agree that a shared account is very bad news, it's just that, from my own experience, there is a gray area that makes it an individual guild decision.

This was a really well thought-out post and I have to agree; to some extent, adult couples or even just adult friends who have access to accounts are far less of a problem than siblings and younger players; which I tend to chalk up to trust and maturity.
