So those of us without the expansion will still, for instance, see the

Yes. They explicitely stated that. But you won't have access to the two new
races (gnomes, worgen) nor the new instances (I assume) or the new
profession (archeology). Your level cap will be frozen at 80 but you should
probably be ok to enter the new zones as well, though I'm not sure on that...
I suspect you won't have access to the new zones, the same way that
you didn't have access to the new zones when BC came out, unless you
had that xpac. For example if you attempted to take the boat to
Azuemyst Isle and didn't have BC, you'd get dumped in the water with
an onscreen message saying you needed Burning Crusade to access this
area. Going by land might be the same as when you went from Eastern
Plaguelands to the Ghostlands, it was like going into an instance.
Now the new classes I would think you'd still get them, for example,
you'd still be able to create a human hunter or a troll druid without
having the xpac.
