The Back To the Future Problem

As the Devs have stated they love how the new 1-60 zones play out and lore and story behind them and how everything feels connected to anything else. I would tend to agree I have played through most of them and they are extremely well done and thought out. Almost every quest has some lore part to it or its own individual story something, which was not always the case in the past. The problem lies in the fact that when you go to Outland you actually do go back in time before the Cataclysm where none of this has happened. The same thing also happens when you go to Northrend, but then when you start doing the 80-85 quests you go "back to the future" and yes even if I don't play alts or anything like that I know this is a problem. Sure probably 90% of the player base doesn't actually give a crap that this is going on, but I don't care.

You see the Devs have talked about this bothering them and I really don't understand how they don't just apply some simple fix to it. You can even use the fact that it is going back in time and have a bronze dragon port you there to make sure things go how they are supposed to go. This way going back in time actually makes sense because you are making sure it happens, now maybe leveling in that "past" doesn't make too much sense, but really it would be better than just telling everyone to ignore that it is happening.

Yes I do understand that there a lot bigger issues to fix then this one, but really I am a Lore person this is an easy fix so let's get on it.
