The problem, with all these "bring back THIS exp servers" is that without new content on them, people WILL get bored,
Sure, you will have your die hard fans that wont quit, but the whole nostalgia people have, will get stale really fast.
Feedback is just data. Chances are Blizzard still has all the feedback data from when we were all playing on Vanilla servers, BC Servers, etc, etc. It would be wasteful just to reopen Vintage servers when they could simply review the existing data.

Call me ignorant but wouldn't it cost Blizzard next to nothing to maintain classic realms? If anything it would bring some players back. Im not for the idea but I'm not so negatively against it like a lot of people are. If you get bored of classic WoW again then play on current servers again? At least having an option would be awesome.
Honestly, if I wasn't so bored I'd just report the thread as an attempt at trolling and move on.
I think it's a great idea.
1) Put up a couple of classic vanilla servers that have none of all the modern tweaks of convenience.
2) Allow the raving rose-tinted bespectacled people play.
3) Have most of them realise how different it used to be.
4) Get people more appreciative of what WoW has become and less of a toxic fanbase (or at least less people blindly claiming how good Vanilla was in comparison to now)

What your calling "feedback" from classical servers is Nostalgia, (Specifically a yearning for the return of past circumstances, events, etc.) as in your feeling nostalgic regarding one type of game play mechanic and that it should be brought back, or your feeling Nostalgic about how bad the grind was and that it should not be part of the future expansions, And this they HAVE commented on this multiple time's.
Every year, on average, 40 Europeans die in terrorist attacks. When you compare the policies and billions plown down into this number, you quickly discover that we should not be spending billions to fight terrorism, but to fight bathtubs. Over five times as many people drown in bathtubs every year.
Blizzard sits around ALL DAY every day thinking up new ways to make $$$. If they thought this would bring in one cent of profit they would do it.
You're asking them to recheck the content that was lost because the playerbase did not want it anymore, juuuuust to be extra sure that the majority no longer wants it.
You're asking Blizzard to essentially double-check at the cost of maintaining at least one server per region, as well as deciding which patch they should use, fishing up the old code and making sure that it works, and sifting all the bad or unnecessary feedback from the new feedback, which means a lot more stress for their employees, they'll need to higher additional staff to deal with the influx, or both.
It's like your power supply doesn't work and so you buy a completely new computer just to make sure that it was in fact your power supply that was the problem. You're trying to solve a "problem" in a very inefficient way and THAT is why it won't happen: the costs far outweigh the benefits.
Your heart's in the right place but you're being extremely idealistic. This is not a practical solution and would just be a waste of time and money.
Lol remember back in BC when you had to hit Revered with a faction to be able to buy the key to unlock the heroic dungeon of that area?
Or spamming chat trying to find people for Arcatraz and Shadow Labs for the "so loved" attunements.
