My guess is that they will rebuild vanilla in their current new tech stack (treat it almost like an expansion) and then just reskin the UI to look like the old UI so it will use the same API as live, re-skin the world and use old world geometry, etc. Under the hood is still the new tech stack but using old assets.

I think many of their ops people would quit if they tried to use their old vanilla stack. Trying to support that at scale again would be extremely difficult. It would also add soo much tech debt they worked so hard to remove.

Again thats just my guess.
