Exactly. If you can't make it back to your corpse, you lose even more money. If you can't make it back, or don't want to try, your corpse (and gear) ends up in town. Then say you'll lose 10% of the experience you've gained that day, and the incentive for you to get back out there and gain that experience back is there.
The only problem will be the 0.004% chance the game glitches out and someone loses all their gear. All the spoiled little fans (that probably still play WoW) will cry and complain. Then somebody will make the point "you shouldn't have died in the first place," and the community will be just as divided about it as they are now on the AH issue.
Still, I'd be cool with it. If you make it back to your corpse, you don't lose anything. It would give people a reason to keep an "In Case Of Death" set of gear handy :D
