Update with some info: Due to the very large influx of players coming back for Mists of Pandaria, I'm honestly expecting around 20 people looking to resume raiding who have previously raided with us. We are considering running 25-man raids in Mists, but this would hinge on being able to recruit another ~10 members. We are willing to consider mergers or small groups interested in joining us should we decide to run 25 mans. If you are interested in this please let me know and I will get you more information.
HEY HEY WE'RE THE MONKEES!
AND PEOPLE SAY WE MONKEY AROUNDDDDDDDD
I was going to insult your stupidity, but this really made me laugh.
Don't do it =P Ok, go ahead and do it, but expect a lot and I do mean a *lot* of work on general recruiting and maintenance. You think you work hard on maintaining 10, wait until 25m ;) Socom can attest to our GM's spreadsheets (yes spreadsheets, I kid you not).
With your 20 and (hopefully) ~10 more good people, you'll have 30 (math!). That's not enough. If you raid 3x/week like my raid does, 32 is absolute minimum so the 25 can keep going without pulling from outside the raider core on some nights. 34 is more comfortable, and in the summer, prepare to have around ~36 in your roster to keep going. You will have to recruit, and recruit, and recruit pretty much constantly for the duration of your raid. Very few people can do it without burning out at one point.
This is just from normal RL events going on (work, meetings, class, finals, dates, boozing, who - ring and what not).
This is assuming you are raiding to progress heroic modes. If you aren't, then it becomes easier, since you can raid normal mode until the heroic nerfs start going through the current tier. You can pretty much pull anyone off the street for normal.

Oh, don't worry, I understand it would be a lot of work. Luckily I can pawn some of the work off to others in a larger raiding environment :D But seriously, it's only an idea, and if we find the right people, we'll try it.
Chances are it won't happen. We need to eat another group of skilled players for it to happen (I simply refuse to recruit up to 30-35 players individually, just recruiting 2-3 is painful enough) and I do think it's unlikely that we can find said group, since most folks are content where they are. But, on the off chance that some group does desire such, I'm leaving the option open.
