While I like the intent of your post, I think the reasoning is slightly flawed. Blizzard has already experimented with a tradechat-driven profession: Enchanting. Prior to WotLK, you had to find enchanters in tradechat and get them to enchant your stuff. Now we have vellums so you can buy enchantments on scrolls. It seems like they gave up on that process, and for good reason- tradechat is fairly limited by the amount of availability of players at any given time. To be honest, it's further limited by poor policing from GMs (not that there is *any* policing). I usually keep tradechat running in a different tab, gathering links for my Gnomish Yellow Pages addon so when I ened something, I have a list of who has advertised. Actually looking at tradechat (or worse, trying to trade) is usually an invitation to anal linkspam, thunderfury spam, general trolling, and the like.
