I personally think that it would be good for the game to allow cross faction raiding and dungeons. Having the entire population open for any particular queue would help queue times for everyone. To preserve the feel each instance could get flagged as either Horde or Alliance based on which side was in the majority and the other players could be illusion cloaked to look like the other side just like happens in the various Caverns of Time instances.

No. I think it should be done with RealID friends, I do NOT want to pair up with random Allies for dungeons/raids in the slightest.

Well I do NOT want to be paired up with random hordies. Because they smell. And have weird accents. And I'm just not willing to spend my time around someone named "gnomepunter".
Random queuing leads to the really nasty trolling and backlash that led Blizzard to close off communication between factions in the first place. Some people take the faction boundaries *way too seriously*.It might taper off after awhile, but I know there are people who refuse to pug now due to the early attitudes they encountered from a few in LFD and LFR. It would probably be the same--or worse--in random cross-faction groups.But playing with my RealID pals on their Hordies could be great; I really prefer my Alliance characters but all of my off-server pals play Horde, and several same-server friends do, too!

@AltairAntares: Lol, no offense meant. My Dad plays Ally. I just...happen to have more bad experience with Trolls and jerks in Ally groups than I do Horde groups. Not that it's a trend, but it my luck, and I switched to Horde to avoid them as much as possible. I don't want the chance to run in to them again.Furthermore, the idea of the orb I dislike. I have my characters look a very specific way and dislike the dungeons that change it.
