Interesting how everything the OP requests was changed by Blizzard because the player base asked for it.
IMHO - instead of bringing back old garbage that people did not want to do, I'd rather see new forms of immersion.
I wish more people would just understand simple life truths..
You only get out what you put in.
Good things take time.
They're not difficult concepts, but this generation seems to have forgotten them completely.
The game never felt immersive so I think there's no point on putting thoses features back.
I know the OP is taking the piss and really going "look how stupid these are, the game has come so far!", but with only six or seven exceptions, the game could really benefit from re-instating some of these things.
Immersion isn't totally gone in WoW today. I was more immersed in Pandaria questing than in Outland or Northrend questing. The world is more alive, more fleshed out and just more detailed. So while I feel that that has improved vastly, the systems / ideologies behind the game have gone dramatically down hill.

The Naaru may not have forgotten the Draenei, but Blizzard sure as hell has.
and having put it into practice the likelihood of "shooting someone in the skull" at point blank range is ridiculously low if the person you are shooting at knows you are there and is about to break your bow in half over YOUR skull.
I still find that study interesting, though. Thanks for sharing it.
Some good ideas, and a lot of ideas that would basically kill off the game. But brainstorming is good.
On Topic: The original post itself was just showing some items which were removed to improve gameplay and game mechanics in general. Immersion is subjective. It is based solely on the player and their definition of it For me, I am still after Gnome Druids. Some people would QQ that would ruin their immersion. In the end, it is all a matter of personal perspective.
Not only that but hunters are the best of the best with a weapon, it's something they've done their entire life and something they're alive because of. I don't really see how it's possible to simulate in the real world unless Robin Hood is knocking about.
I stopped reading after no.5 and i have to say no, no, no, no and no! Well, okay, i stopped after 6. And no. 6 is YES PLZ
I know you're trying to take the piss but I'd actually like it if they did about half of that list.
