I think the problem is that for the last two or three expansions we have had enemies in the face of which the hatred of alliance for horde or horde for alliance seemed quaint. When you are faced with the massed armies of the burning crusade or the undead scourge, how could heroic members of either faction not turn and face the real enemy - and in BC and to a lesser extent Lich King we did that. Cataclysm sort of slid to one side on the grounds that there was a period of time between the defeat of the lich king and the attacks by Deathwing and his minions - time enough for war to break out, which continued even when Ragnoros and Deathwing started smashing things up. That is why Pandaria is a good idea; there isn't a word threatening enemy there, or not one i've seen so far (possibly the sha, but who knows). We simply go to a new land, explore it, help out our new buddies (Pandarians and Jinyu/Hozen), take care of long running problems (mandits and those other guys) and then go home. There wouldn't seem to be any overarching neutral faction that would require us to team up (there are nuetral factions, but we are trying to ally with them, not follow their leadership), and more importantly, no world destroying threat that requires the horde and alliance to team up. So an increase in warfare between the two sides seems natural.
