Even then, the limitation on heirlooms is due to how it handles the saving of item data. Pets, Mounts, and Achievements are now saved on a separate system then item data (well, other then the items used to "activate" the pets and mounts), that will make it possible to pull the same data to any server because the pets and mounts and directly tied to your authentication. Hierlooms are still stuck as item data on individual server farms, which means they are still stuck to a server. Can it be possible to make them Account-Wide? Yes, but they have to be careful with it, otherwise people can transfer item data between servers other then heirlooms (like if they just used parts of the server migration systems).
Could they technically apply this to the AH?
