Keste and I have done it and gone and gotten another character up to level 70. Our mage / druid combo is now a little over half way through 69 and we plan to ding 70 on Wednesday. In fact, we kind of have to ding on Wednesday because we've decided to make an event out of it. Listening to the WoW Insider Show I heard one of the suggestions for how Turpster was going to ding his shadow priest and thought it was a great way to role-play an event.
We want to keep it short and sweet. Wednesday is a Karazhan day for some of our guildmates so we aren't going to draw it out with big speech and such. We're going to call it a Graduation party and people can witness us leveling and then have an informal dance party until people have to go prepare to raid.
We've already done the quest chain that led us up to Curse of the Violet Tower. We're going to find some spiffy black robes to wear. At the event we'll explain that Archmage Vargoth was to busy to attend in person but will be projecting his image here to hand us our diplomas. We'll summon him and emote accepting our diplomas and then complete this final quest and everyone can witness us changing from 69 to 70.
Now all we have to do is get that extra experience to close the gap so completing that quest will actually cause us to level. Boy it would be embarrassing if we brought everyone out and it didn't work! I'm super excited about this and can't wait until Wednesday!
