I like the idea of character transfers since it's not as though they had a free ride on servers like Nost or anything.
I figure the actual reason it's yet to be done though is because of how much work it'd be for the devs to make it happen without an actual character database to yoink 'em from.

One idea that I thought may be fun as a community would be a month where everyone puts aside their mains and alts for a month, and rerolls, with no help of mains. Do some race to 60 with a prizebox that you could only open at lvl 60. Problem would be policing, such an event, because I can think of no way other than the honor system but I haven't really thought it through. You can't force people not to play their mains/help others. But if there was some way to sychronize player start date, advertise it, work out policing and you made some sweet prizes (donated, full complement of 18 slot bags, 1000G, some epics, a mount, a title, etc?). Maybe it would be away to attract a new flux of people to start out on the server and fill lower levels during the event, which would make leveling more fun all around. Maybe some would stay afterwards. Just an idea.

1. Yeah, it is what it is. TBCs gear for accumulated honor pts system was better imo.

2. Ok, you just get booted from the guild, and need to be in the guild to get the prize. Would require well-defined terms for booting, but I figure people would be incentivized to report others because it would be a way to narrow your competition.

3. Which is why it won't happen. I would if I had the time, but sadly, I don't, and there seems not to be interest anyway.

I thought having a race to 60 would be a very cool idea, but the longer I think of it the more problems I see. And realistically, I don't think more than 5-10 people will participate and probably give up soon when they find out they're not going to win. Maybe it'd be a good idea to make a poll or something to sign up for the race to see how much interest there really is.
