My primary Horde alt refuses to do the Orgrimmar cooking dailies that involve stealing food from the other races.My main and two primary alts are on an RP server. I'm pretty casual with it, however - mainly with a couple of friends and guildies. Most of our RP comes from character lore, not in-game elements. However, things like the daily mentioned above do creep in from time to time. For example, my main - a Tauren druid - was lamenting the fact that we have to kill other Tauren in Tol Barad. But of course, then there are the Grimtotem that have to be dealt with, so maybe it makes sense. We hate them because they hated us first?

Also, like others have mentioned, I do wish there were some "alternate" progression options. Because of the linear quest lines and the dependence upon quest chains to unlock later phased areas, it's really tough to make individual choices like this. For example, my Alliance character would have bailed out of the quest line where you ultimately free Magatha Grimtotem, but then the zone progression would have halted.

Yeah, I'm finding that a downside to the new questing system; it's happening in the lowbie zones as well as the new high level areas. Do every quest, or you're done. In RP terms, it feels very railroad-y, to feel made to do quests that some character just wouldn't/shouldn't do in order to continue not just the story but progression in general.

I totally agree with you, I had a really tough time doing the Azshara "Ancient" killing quest, if there was some other option like asking the Ancient to go away from Azshara would have been better.
