What I get out of your post is that you are convinced the best solution is the one that you haven't been able to program for.
I have zero information about how your business works, so I don't want to sound like I'm degrading anyone for not having solved the BOA cross realm issue yet, but don't you think that if it's caused you this much trouble so far that maybe you should take a different approach?
You can mail an item to every character on an account once purchased, the same way every toon i make get's a pet for the 5th anniversary. If the goal is to get BoAs cross realm so your customers don't feel the need to buy realm transfers, why not step back and simply take the every toon gets it in the mail option for now?
The worst thing to happen would be that some people have less bag/bank space on some toons. But in those cases you can limit the items to what is usable for those toons as well as allow people to delete items they don't want, or even allow them to drop the items into void storage for free if it's BoA.
I think what the OP is getting at is that there is one than one way to skin this cat and at some point the deliverable should take precedence over your preferred method.
P.S. Btw Big Z, every time I see you post I think of the story of you throwing shadow bolt bean bags and I laugh. Thanks for sharing that.
