I would dye everything pink instantly.
I do like the idea, however it would be too much work to go back and redo every item in the game to support it. It also wouldn't really work well with their different difficulties having their own colours at the moment. Perhaps if they created items/gear specifically with the intent to let you dye it how you want would be a neat little feature.
We are warriors, born from the light
An army for freedom, defenders of life
Warriors, euphoria will rise
Returning from darkness we bury all lies

It would conflict with Wow's philosophy of gear recognition. But the biggest problem would be having to remake every single piece of gear in the game from scratch to accomodate for colour changing.
Hell yes! I think the "It would be silly cus pink/clown outfits" arguments are invalid. It's already happening with transmog, not a lot but it does. Also, why the hell do you care how someone's character looks like? If he wants to be wearing pink with bunnies all over it and kill some dragons like that then that's the person's own choice not yours.
And for those of you that haven't played the other mmos out there now, not everyone looks like silly power ranger techno color crazies in those other games.
What doesn't kill us, only makes us stranger
You already have Pokemon in game, Kung-Fu Pandas, gnomes, dwarves, mechanostriders, biplanes, APC's, trolls etc. How are things not silly already? This is a game for 12 year olds, do you consider it "serious" in any way so that if everyone and their brother dye their clothes pink (which they will), grow braids and mustaches and run around in pink dresses somehow this will mean that the game will lose its seriousness?
Haha. Sorry but you make me laugh.
EDIT: I used to play Ultima Online back in 2004.
So anyway, UO had dyes available, and ppl used them to dye their clothes and armour. What happened was, you'd get male "Red" characters with blond braids and moustaches and beards (Red characters were PK's-Player Killers) dressed in 17th Century Bavarian Female pink female dresses and holding instead of weapons skillets (frying pans), because the game allowed one to wear a female dress on top of one's armor. If you were a caster, it didn't matter what you held in your hand.
So you had male Player-Killer characters with braids and moustaches dressed like Bavarian maids in pink dresses running around killing players casting flamestrikes holding skillets. Haha. Absolutely ridiculous. It is only a matter of time before forum pressure turns WoW into something equally pathetic, seeing as how Blizzard would implement almost anything.

Veteran vanilla player - I was 31 back in 2005 when I started playing WoW - Nostalrius raider with a top raid guild.
I said no. I like the idea in principle, but I'm not sure how it would work out for sets that have a lot of variety in their existing colorschemes. It works well in Diablo 3 and GW2 where there aren't many models, and those there are are frankly pretty bland, but I just don't think it would work well with the rather more detailed models in WoW.
Well why not, but personally I don't give a damn about it.

I would love to see dyes come into the game. If anything just to make it easier to get gear that might just slightly be off colour to match exactly.

Yes, but I'm not holding my breath for that to happen any time soon
Would be a great addition, it leaves me baffled why it isn't already available.
So many of the armour sets have crap colours.
Armor dyes would be awesome!! But then blizz can't really recolor amour sets w/o purpose!! :P
