I'm betting on Alliance and Horde Death Knight alternatives. Not betting on these being available to anybody but Death Knights, specifically because Warlock and Paladin mounts are not.Getting alternative class-specific mounts also has a precedence. The Argent Charger.

I used the mount to visually pick out DKs in Dal from a distance for the holiday achievements. Whatever will I do now!?

I've avoided the ICC ending cinematic, but has the Knights of the Ebon Blade storyline reached its terminus? If there's any unfinished business I could see these mounts being a reward in a DK-only epilogue. We're all used to seeing DKs nowadays and it's easy to forget that they were a headline feature in the current expansion. Since Arthas is dead we could see the dissolution of the KotEB and the full reintegration of the death knights with their respective factions, hence the colour-coding of the mounts as red and blue.This is only food for thought, of course. In the scenario I suggested, every 80 DK would wind up with one of these and they wouldn't be very special.

"specifically because Warlock and Paladin mounts are not"I'd like to point out that Paladin-style warhorses are available from Alliance-faction vendors, and Warlock-style mounts are available as a rare drop in Karazhan, and as a seasonal drop from the Headless Horseman.

I'd like to point out that we're not talking about a Death Knight-"style" mount. This IS the Death Knight mount.Also, I don't think you can argue that simple horse mounts are "Paladin-style", or all demon mounts are "Warlock-style".
