It would be two quarters of no growth or losses, they won't afford that.

Even if its just a few dungeons or a daily zone, there has to be more content left. Even the Ruby Dragonshrine was better than a few more months of Icecrown Citadel. Not unless the next expansion is far more developed at this stage than previous ones and will be ready to ship not long after Blizzcon - would could be possible, but sounds improbable.
But they have done exactly that for the last 3 expansions?

Yes, it's insane and nonsensical that they'd keep repeating these same mistakes and doing irreversible damage to their playerbase... but there's no evidence to suggest they're going to avoid it this time around. There's frankly more evidence to the contrary. It's horrible, but it's completely believable that we'll be in Hellfire Citadel for 10-14 months.
