Why though (long spawn timers, I mean)? There are a lot of people that just cannot live on their computers all day and all night- I have seen people actually doing this in regards to this.
Minfernal and scourgling whelps- for example- these things just do not spawn. Over the weekend, I saw the same gnome mage at the minfernal site every single time I checked that area (every couple of hours while I was awake). When I went back in the morning- he was still there.
I could have sworn one of your screen change things said to play in moderation.
Also, CRZ is making it extremely frustrating with some of these spawns. I landed in Coldara and there was literally one of the new dragonlings sitting right next to the camp. The very second I landed- it was gone (the server had switched into CRZ mode). Same happened with the scourgling pet. Why can these not be a random spawn with say a cockroach or a rat or something? In other words, zone wide?
I never had a reason to hate on CRZ before, but this is making it to where I see no point with it. This and the long spawn timers are causing more frustration for your customers than it's worth.
