Not to be a, you know, noodge, or anything, but...... wasn't the Maelstrom the place where the Well of Eternity imploded, causing the Great Sundering? Not an entrance into Deepholm. I guess it would make sense if they explained it away as a weak point between dimensions, but... uhm, there's nothing.

I think in the war for the ancients books the old gods where manipulating everyone, hoping to use deathwing to take control of the well eternity from the burning legion and somehow use the well of eternity to release themselves. So I guess I could see how it might be a week point/dimential vortex thingy into deepholm....

The Maelstrom is where the Well of Eternity imploded, where the whole of Azeroth was sundered. For the story of Cataclysm, Deathwing is going to use the Maelstrom as a weak point to escape out of Deepholm, and in the process he will destroy that world-pillar the Titans made.

The purpose of the Well of Eternity was never really explained, but we know that the Titans imprisoned the elementals in the Elemental Planes after the war with the Old Gods, so it's possible that they originally created it as an entrance into the Elemental Planes, and its role as a massive found or arcane energy came about as an unintended or added benefit.
