The emerald dream seems like something that would make a better raid+dungeons (or even a zone) than an entire expansion.

I'd have thought rather than a zone, from a lore point of view it'd make more sense to eventually appear in an expansion that rather than adding new zones/islands etc. instead phases the whole world - in a zeldaesque light vs. dark world type fashion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Emerald Dream our whole world, but uncorrupted? And now, because of the Nightmare, portions of it started to corrupt and creatures started to mutate and blabla? If that's so, Blizzard would have a perfect excuse for a new expansion. Think about it, where does our world go after Cataclysm? There aren't any maps to further expand our world, unless we got some sort of new portal to go to yet another planet. If we had the Emerald Dream, we could have a totally new world, 'on the other side'. Something like in Zelda: Ocarina of Time, when u went back and forth in time. The Emerald Dream could have places that aren't remotely the same as we know them, because of the corruption of the Nightmare.. imagine Stormwind, totally destroyed and full of mutated people.. complete zones changed completely with new raids and monsters.. a whole new world, without needing to expand the world we have. I think it's got an awesome potential and they could give us some mayor lore on Malfurion and what's happening over there.. I think you could do a lot with the Emerald Dream, so I'm really hoping that Blizz is thinking of making an expansion of it.

"imagine Stormwind, totally destroyed"This kind of thing basically sounds like what they're already doing with Cataclysm. An Emerald Dream expansion would just sound to me like, "Hey look! It's Azeroth, but now it's different! Um...again!"Frankly, I'd rather go to yet another planet than to Azeroth v3. Plus, are we certain there isn't some south pole, or yet another continent west of Kalimdor? Even a maelstrom island themed expansion sounds better to me than ED (haha...the Emerald Dream has the same acronym as Erectile Disfunction!)
