Folks that want to do dailes can still do them.

Then do the reputation. If you WANT to grind for twice as long, grind for twice as long. What is stopping you? If you legitimately enjoyed it, you'd keep going after you hit exalted.
Grinding twice as long doesn't earn anything. It doesn't even earn reputation points. It's like telling people that enjoy leveling to keep grinding mobs long after they've reached the cap.
And yes, R>E being shorter than H>R does in fact reduce the accomplishment.
EDIT: This is comparable to making the final boss in a raid easier to satisfy all the player that don't like raids but still want the rewards. Or reducing the cutoff for PVP's top rewards to include most players to satisfy those that hate PVP. Or making every cast of fishing reward a skill point all the way to 600 to satisfy those that want the cooking buffs but hate the effort required.
Earning reputation with various factions has long been an important part to World of Warcraft and as time has gone on, we've made tweaks and changes to the system to make it more interesting and to give players access to unique items. For example, we recently hotfixed the game to apply a change to some reputation items which you can read about in our [url="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/7207170/Patch_505_Hotfixes_-10_2_2012"]recently updated blog[/url] that allows players to purchase certain items much sooner. And we're not done!
Coming in a future patch, earning reputation is going to become much more fluid. Basically, once one of your characters has reached at least Revered reputation with a faction, all other characters on the same Battle.net account will then earn reputation with the same faction at twice the rate. Going one step further, and as an added bonus, your main character who reached Revered will also begin to earn double the reputation as he or she climbs to Exalted.
Here's a simplified break down:
Any single character earns Revered reputation with a faction All other characters on the Battle.net account begin to earn double reputation for that one same faction The Revered character earns double reputation as he or she works toward Exalted ??? Profit
We’ll keep you posted as this change is closer to being implemented. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your feedback!
I like the alts part getting double rep but don't understand the point of making reputation double between revered and exalted. Isnt this essentially the same as lowering the amount of reputation needed to become exalted? Doesn't this just kind of invalidate the steps of raising from one reputation level to another?
