That doesn't really change the answer given in the column. The point made in the column is that if you can't trade it to other players, it's not really liquid anymore, and it throws a big wrench in the whole idea of the economy of WoW. If you want to buy a piece of armor from me, how do you do that? If we barter "stuff" then it will be very difficult to make fair trades (like the example given regarding trading flasks for gear) or eventually, some sort of "stuff" is going to become the new gold. For example, everything will cost a certain number of pyrium ore or something.Making gold account bound still ruins its ability to be a currency for exchange between players, so it ruins a great deal of what gold is used for.
