Well let's think about this for a moment shall we.It's also implied by the statement that they will be adding this new instance 'mid-stream' so to speak in the expansion, maybe a 4.1 or 4.2. This strongly suggests, although not guarantee, that it might be a raid encounter. Big patches usually mean a new raid, so if it's a new five man dungeon it would exist independantly of whatver new raid was released. In 2.4. 3.2 and 3.3. new fives man were released but all were attached to the main raid delivered with that patch. I'm guessing a big raid thenIt won't be the end raid of the expansion because we know we will fight Deathwing there, but given Blizzard's focus on telling stories whatever the Caverns of time instance deals with will be particular to the story of the expansion.In my opinion, the only event that matches would have to be the Battle of Grim Batol as told in Richard Haack's Day of the Dragon. It involves Deathwing, the Demon Soul, plenty of Orcs who could serve as bosses, and plenty of scope for interfercence form the Infinite Dragonflight and it can be used to help players form a connection with Deathwing (the Lich King was truly the Warcraft villain who needed no introduction, but Deathwing needs build up).

I'm with you on the time frame, but I'm going to have to suggest flipping your idea on its head.Imagine instead that the Infinite Dragonflight are attempting to prevent the Cataclysm by ensuring that Deathwing is killed, and as a player, you must take on the role of a Dragonmaw Orc and ultimately help Deathwing escape.

I think you're right about the setting, it sounds perfect for the uninitiated and works as a great build-up. We can see Neltharion as he used to be, because I doubt Blizzard wants to show him in his present day form until the very end of the expansion.
