Hrm.I wonder...if at the end of this expansion, Deathwing's plan succeeds, despite the efforts of the heroes of Azeroth, and the planet begins to crumble...only for a race back to a newly-upgraded Halls of Origination to gain control of the machinery to reboot Azeroth, choosing that in preference to the Old Gods roaming free around the universe.And then, instead of the expected annihilation, the world is replaced by the Emerald Dream!The only problem I can see is that they'd have to re-do the entire world at that point, again, with level 85+ content in the new sections around the Maelstrom. Which means it's certainly unlikely. But it'd still be cool.

Of course how would we get to Outland and Northrend? New Azeroth would have no Dark Portal and Northrend would still be part of the one giant continent. It's a cool idea but it would work better for a Warcraft 4. Redoing 1-60 was a lot of work... redoing 1-85 and 86-90 would be hell (can you say terrible xpac?).

I like your idea but that would be a lot of development time to make it work.

Yeah, it would be too much.But I would not be surprised at all, were Deathwing to be set up to fail by the Old Gods.Face it, while the Old Gods aren't sane as mortals or Titans would put it, they are smart. They've seen Azeroth's heroes beat down two of their number, as well as the Lich King. They know that heroes will likely kill anything that they really put their mind to.Now, take Neltharion, aka Deathwing, the Aspect of Earth, which is the final, uttermost prison for the Old Gods. Maybe, just maybe, Deathwing's death would weaken their prison sufficiently for all the Old Gods to burst forth in their awful glory, not just by sending out a few parts.Even if it doesn't work immediately, maybe it'll slowly degrade the prison while they make more concerted escapes attempts.And if the heroes get more powerful...maybe someone will get powerful enough to be able to summon the Old Gods forth, after suitable persuasion.
