I'm not HAPPY about the idea of starting at 80... though I have sat around with an alt that I've gotten to L60 before and just gone "Ugh, I wish they were 85 already..." I seem to have sixty levels worth of patience with alts, then I lose it and go do something else. Maybe a paid service to BOOST alt characters from, say, 55, to 80, with that set being what they then get in the mail? That would be cool.However, STARTING at 80? After all the issues with DKs starting at 55 (58 when getting out of starter zones) and all those people trying to tank on them off the bat resulting in quite a lot of frustration in early Wrath era, I don't see them doing something that would allow anyone to create a high-level class... Can you imagine the issues if someone who'd never played before (let alone never tanked before) decided to roll a feral druid and tank with it?Oh, the horrors... bear tanking is difficult as it IS, let alone the thought of trying to do it without 65 levels of experience DOING it behind you... Urgh.I do like the idea of it being a set you'll have gathered by the end of Wrath content through questing that will make going into the cata areas a bit easier. I died so much in early Vashj'ir, it isn't even funny. >.< As Snuzzle so eloquently put it earlier... "Ow, my face. Over and over ow my face. "

No one has 65 levels of experience at doing it behind them unless they're still tanking the same way they were doing it at level 20, in which case, they're doing it wrong. They need to learn how to do it at endgame with all the skills you don't get until late in the game. If they can't figure that out from 80-85, having them spend 79 more levels doing it without the endgame skills will just make them worse at it.
