Why can't we fly over Stratholme or Silvermoon?

I can't answer Stratholme but you can't fly to places such as Silvermoon City or The Exodar because of how Blizzard designed those two areas.Places such as Azuremyst Isle and Eversong Woods are directly tied in with the Outland servers, that is to say, those zones are on the same servers/instances that Outland is on. This was to prevent people without the expansion from going to them.

He meant actually in those zones.Those zones are still marked unflyable. While the Exodar has no constraints as it's underground, and all parts of it above ground are already rendered, Silvermoon City is probably not. Therefore they would have to put work into them, and probably won't do it before the next expansion, or at the very least, several content patches.On the PTR for 4.0.1, there was an interesting bug with both of those zones. The water didn't render. It physically wasn't there. So you could slowfall down to the bottom of the ocean, and walk all the way out towards the zone edge. Near this edge, your location switched to the sea, and you left all chat channels. Your location would not come up. And you could mount your flying mount, and fly in these areas, at least on Azuremyst Isle. If you went back into another zone, it dismounted you. You couldn't fly off the edge of the zone, as there was a semi-visible wall to stop you. But if you flew up high enuf, Hellfire Pennisula's sky would fade in a little with the Azuremyst Isle sky. Because both starting zones are actually on the same map as Outland, just separated by a great distance. This was an interesting bug. and let you see all of what was under the water without anything in the way. I think it was fixed a few weeks later.
