I don't really think the "psychology of content available is directly related to levels" as you said. When wrath came out everyone was fighting to get to 80 as soon as possible. And sure, having 10 more levels stretched that time out some. Blizzard has already said the time to level to 85 will be similar in the time it took to get from 70-80. So, some will power through in binge sessions and get there in a couple of days, while the rest of us take some weeks. However, the life of an expansion IS directly related to raid content. We are in the age of PUG's. ICC 10 (at least) is being pugged, and i've been in some fairly good ICC 25 pug groups when I miss my guilds run. As are the rest of the raids. While everyone is able to get gear relatively easy (easy being a definition of time investment compared to previous expansions) you are seeing many more people spending their 'endgame time' in raids. So, can a single expansion last for 2 years even if it's only 5 levels? Of course it can. As long as blizzard keeps giving us more raids and a sprinkling of 5 mans, an expansion can last forever! Because really, what's the difference between an expansion and a major content patch? New classes? Some random sparkly things. TLDR: The expansion cycle will stay on the same schedule it has been. If not slow down due to Blizzard's other IPs (omgnewmmowhat)
