Oh my days. This forum has the biggest drama queens ever. Nothing has even happened and people are threatening to quit the game? As if anyone cares anyway! Haaaaaaa god stop being such losers.
I'm pretty sure they will not have those moral objections about translating RL wealth into in-game status.
I could give a rat's ass if they boost leveling speeds (or even if they make them longer; I don't play alts.) Until they make something about leveling "challenging," there's really no reason for it to be seen as anything other than a time sink required to get to the content Blizzard seems to actually care about. And some very vocal players seem very adverse to making leveling content challenging, in the way that it would affect THEIR leveling speed. They want leveling to be "difficult" and "challenging" for other people, but they don't want it blocking their access to raids/arenas/etc.

Would you be ok with a potion that increases valor gain?
Would you be ok with a potion that increases your chance of winning gear with charms?
You have to draw a line somewhere and as people get used to each new thing in the store the line starts to blur.
But to directly answer your question despite its rather glaring false parallel, I really wouldn't care. I likely wouldn't buy it, and would simply progress at my own speed. I didn't farm hozen peace pipes or trawl the auction house for them when MoP was released. I did everything straight through. What someone else decides to blow their money on is their thing. I'm an avid mount collector; I vehemently grind raids and dungeons until I get the mounts they drop. The only mount I ever bought was the celestial steed when it first came out. And while many more cool mounts have come out on the store since, I really don't care enough to buy them.
Also, I thought the WoW economy was supposed to collapse back when they made the guardian cub available to buy off the store and then sell on the AH. How's that been going?
Well then congratulations, you don't fall into the group of people I was talking about.
This is paranoid drivel. I have 2 90s, 3 86s and when I am bored I level new toons just for fun. I wish leveling was more challenging for my own enjoyment since I don't give a rat's ass about how other people play.
Closing this as unconstructive and already seriously derailed. As well, there's already a thread about this which has been very active and that's where you should continue the discussion if you wish.
If the OP wants to make his appeal direct to Blizzard, there is an e-mail address for the community managers that can be found on the Blizzard web site. That will likely be somewhat more likely to be useful than posting here in hopes that someone at Blizzard will stumble across it.
A bit of civility and respect for others opinions goes a long way toward getting any respect in return. Overly hostile, profane and insulting posts are a sign that people don't really have anything to say. Profanity is best served out in very small doses.
