Like I said before, what you're suggesting is that people stretch their willing suspension of disbelief past reasonable limits. And besides that, which is the real point I was trying to get at: it's too ridiculously convenient. There comes a point where convenience becomes stupid, and for me, and clearly others, this is past that point in terms of travel.

I like the ideal, but I don't think it would work very well with cross-realm or implementation.

For starters, it would most likely have to port you to a fixed position every time you went to the other continent. Oh, you wanted to fly due west from Stranglethorn and end up near Tanaris? Sorry, you're landing in Ratchet (or some other destination), just like every single other person who flies from EK to Kalimdor.
They can't really do a dynamic translation of just ending up in the same spot on the other map's opposite coast, because instance portals are all designed to teleport us to exactly one destination, not a dynamic one, and this scheme essentially turns the coastline into an instance portal.
So chances are, it wouldn't be anywhere near as simple as you might think it is. The fact that it's probably not simple of a change at all makes it highly unlikely, simply because the 'gain' of allowing people to skip boats doesn't really add up to enough to make it worth the effort. There's already dozens of ways of getting between continents, with numerous teleportation items all over, skills that send us everywhere, our Hearthstones, transportation, and not to mention portals galore.

Don't derail the thread

I disagree. The fatigue system is in place for a reason. Yes, it is possible for high level players to fly across zones before fatigue kills them. However, I think this system is in place so that low level characters can't swim across entire continents and reach places like GM island.
However, I do think that it is silly that players can die from fatigue while already dead. I wouldn't mind seeing that removed.

However, there comes a point where my willing suspension of disbelief has been stretched far enough, and this idea being presented is past that point. There's no reason why it should be implemented, because the system is trivialized enough for me to tolerate. Trivializing it further is fundamentally unnecessary.

As for Fatigue, it should be removed from flight. We've already established a mount fails to tire after flying the entire length of Kalimdor, yet gets sleepy 25 feet off the coast of it. But, since OTHERS have gladly offered solid opinions, rather than just choosing to start an argument, I would have to say I am in agreement with several of them.
"I'm a paladin and I can cross water without being fatigued, therefore it should be removed"
I'm a monk and I feel that my high mobility renders ground mounts obsolete. Therefore I think ground mounts should be removed.
Very poor example, but my point remains.
