I have a question ... Is there an expectation of additional heirlooms coming available? If so, do we expect them to be guild only or available at some other vendor? I'm surprised that the TB vendor doesn't have any since both Wintergrasp and the Argent Tournament did. I ask because I have a few hundred TB commendations in my pocket and I can't decide whether to blow them on a mount that I really don't need or hold on to them.

Unfortunately, new heirlooms (head & back) are guild rewards. So, if you are in a small and static guild or guild-less, you (we) are in the "Tough Luck, Charlie"-position.Fortunately, there is something that I did notice that more or less made up for the lack of heirlooms in the 80-85 crawl. If your leveling character happens to be an herbalist or a miner, nodes give experience, approximately the amount of a mob kill. Going through Hyjal and Vashj'ir on my main, while gathering gathering gathering herbs, took substantially less time than it has been on my tailor/enchanter alt. This is just a weird thing I have noticed and I'm not sure it was a planned thing or just a general perk of Cataclysm.

I've got the guild vendor cloak for my alt and we're a couple of levels away from unlocking the helm. It just seems like the variety of heirloom pieces for the 80-85 range is much smaller now.

the herbalism and mining exp have been in the game since 4.02. but it's true, it helps a lot. I level 84-85 with my DK only be gathering minerals in Twilight Highlands :D

There were BOA legs and rings datamined during the Cataclysm beta that will probably appear sometime, for example:http://www.wowhead.com/item=62023http://www.wowhead.com/item=62035There was never any known source for them, so Tol Barad commendations is as likely as anything else.
