When it comes down to it, Cata is about one thing: Revamping the old world. When undertaking a task such as this, "new" content suffered so that the 1-58 experience would be current lore-wise. 58 levels of content is what this expansion is about and it helps to look at it that way. Now do I agree that there are tons of plot holes and loose ends being created? Of course. However, this gives them many options to give future content in raids or expansions. I have a feeling there will be some leftover, why-the-hell-is-that-there content like Zul'Drak, Ahn'kahet, and Crystalsong--the latter was actually where the Argent Tourney was originally supposed to be but they moved it to IC due to it being in the same zone as Dalaran, which is why there are Tourney quests in Crystalsong (random fun fact of the day).

In hindsight, I think it was a very questionable decision to adjust the 1-60 content as they did. We have the lore-sequence issue now, sure, but, meh, I look back and wonder "what if" at it all.What if 1-60 was just tidied up. Improve the flow (as they did anyway), but keep it with it's original pre-BC stories. Then, use the new stories as random daily level 85 content, slowly adding a new story as the expansion goes by. Giving us a reason to do more than sit on our arses (or fly around doing archaeology. Hey, if I'm going to do something boring, I choose that over sitting in Org/SW all day).However, this is hindsight, and it is a wonderful thing, but ignorance is bliss, and sometimes I wish the community lived by that rule instead. Sadly, we don't.
