I actually disagree that this is the end of the Silhouettes. It is true that you will not be able to tell if someone is rocking FL tier gear or a full PVP set, but the basics that they have always wanted to remain clear will remain. My worgen will still look like a worgen warrior, regardless of the tier I decide to put him in. The same will go for all the others who chose various gear set. All this does (beyond making us happy that we don't to worry about wearing that clown suit of mix-matched armor any more) is hide what is purring under the hood.Side Note: I do like the idea of the bi-faction race, but I would expect Blizz to have to find a way to ensure that silhouette is distinct between Horde and Alliance first.

Just as was done with ToC armor - exact same stats, but Horde and Alliance versions look different. For the Pandaren, perhaps they would have a unique way of displaying all the armor? New skins will have to be made anyway, even for old armor, just to fit the new frames. As a really basic example: Horde Pandaren would be more spikey armored perhaps, while Alliance would be more traditional samurai style.

That sounds about right, with the armor being a little different depending on faction. I could see them doing slightly different postures too or something like that which wouldn't require a completely different model, but rather a minor modification.I also fully agree that it's not really needed to have these silhouettes, but I just don't expect Blizzard to drop them. At least not this quickly.
