It's being done in Horizons right now. I wrote a more complete
report elsewhere in this thread, but the result to date is that two
different servers have unlocked new zones and content, and will not
run into any of the Asheron's Call runaway shard problems.

It isn't such a major leap, as you suggest. But as Richard suggests
in his book, we are plagued with people blindly repeating the
paradigms of the past without really knowing why. It can't be much
of a revelation that this type of "thinking" doesn't lend itself
much to innovation!
