"forgetting a profession"

Professions
I was thinking it would be good in MoP if you decided to forget (unlearn) a profession you could but all your knowledge would be stored in the Akashic Records. That way if you decided to return to that profession, your knowledge could be recalled from the "pool of all knowledge" and you wouldn't have to level said profession from the beginning. Perhaps we would have to pay a fee in gold to have these valuable memories restored but it would be worth it.
I don`t agree at all with this idea... Basically, it would mean that I would only have to level one toon to 90 (MoP) and then learn each profession..

Do a raid and get access to a BS recipe ? Switch to BS and learn it... Redo and find an Alchemy recipe ? Switch again and learn it...

This would basically eliminate the need for having alts...
Changing professions should be a choice with consequences.
It would be better if it stored your non-trainer recipes that you had aquired, but only released them to be relearned after you leveled back up to the required level.

Why should we have to level them at all, let alone jump through hoops to collect all those recipes?

I don't think this would be good for the economy in the big picture. There's a reason they want various professions to be interdependent. You can already circumvent the restriction by leveling alts.

Asking for more is asking too much.
With the OP's idea, do we ever see people buying ore, leather, herbs on the AH again?

Want BS and JC? Just mine a bunch, switch out of mining, level those professions, forget the profession, switch back to mining, etc.

No serious gold maker mines or picks herbs. They buy it on the AH. I don't even remember when the last time I mined was. And I've sold thousands of gems.
