Cross faction grouping, hmm. This is a big 'ol can of worms to crack open. It could only be implemented successfully under temporary or very limited circumstances. There is a language barrier for one thing that would have to be explained away.
My thought was a PvP Capitol City Raidfinder.
If you defend you own faction capitol you get a buff when you travel to that city that lasts a couple hours.
If you defeat an enemy city, you get some sort of PvP buff.

I don’t like the faction thing anyway, so I guess yeah.
You could be on to something as well. Maybe Blizzard is moving toward merging all realms into one big community. We would still be on a server as far as milling around town but most people are already playing with people from other servers in BG's, dungeons, raids, and CRZ's. What is left is guild affiliation and the economies.
I've been wanting cross-faction play for a long, long time...
Let's be honest: Most of us aren't Horde or Alliance. First and foremost, we're affiliated to our guilds. Our guilds are pretty much bands of mercenaries. Due to the species of character we pick, one faction acts more favourably towards us than the other faction, but at the end of the day: We're mercs.
Sure; I can't pick up most human quests with my orc... Because those quest-givers will immediately mistake me for some Horde enemy. So my orc will quest primarily for Horde members. I still don't feel like a Hordie; I feel like a mercenary. And I honestly can't see why I shouldn't team up with a human mercenary, or a night elven mercenary... Especially when we're on the same mission.
I like the idea. Like especially if it's only for certain events that are potentialy world devastating and take all of azeroth to fend off. Like the burning legion coming back. It's something I'd want used sparingly though, otherwise it would kinda cheapen the value.
I have a strong preference for one faction, and feel like i belong to that faction, im sure most people do (see what i did there?)

I can see it but not during mop maybe in a xpack about the burning legion it will be plausible.

How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".
My thoughts was that it'll be LFR older content. So LFR Ulduar (or any pre MoP raid) and use challenge mode tech to scale gear. Offer VP or maybe vanity items as rewards and open it up to leveling toons. So once you get to the required level of the raid you can queue along with anyone else above your level and gear will be normalised at a set ilvl.
Seems to fit, as some people would love it and others couldn't care less about older content.

It's a practical suggestion. But thats about it. Not interesting, big, or secret worthy. I, and i am sure many others, would be severly disappointed if they hint (months in advance) at something "big" this expansion and it only turns out to be another quality of life improvement.
Cross faction groups as the "big thing"? No, I don't think so. It makes sense given the Wrathion quest line since he talks about how we all have to pull together (so to speak) and that may happen. I don't think that's what GC is talking about though.
- Don't derail threads. Know what the thread is about and address it with your post.
- Civility is a virtue. Insulting people won't impress anyone. Be smart when you have a different opinion.

Prob be something as simple as armor dye. Something some people will love, some will use because it's there, and many will just think "that's it?"
GC has been so hostile to the original tenets/rules/structure of the game and has been so destructive/reductionist in his changes, it would not surprise me if he were to throw out the window the whole alliance vs horde rivalry and allow cross-faction groups.
