In Development - Guild Banks and Voice Chat

The guild bank scheme looks much more interesting. Especially since it seems to offer protection at least against gun and run scam. (slowly draining resources might still be possible but its probably pretty difficult if there are several people who can at least check the ins and outs.
I don't think that my guild will use it extensively because we only fund the very basics (flasks for tanks and sometimes pots, otherwise everybody has to look for himself) but I know guilds where this works quite differently and who will be very interested in this feature.

Now with guild banks it will be fun to observe if there is more people willing to change the mindset regarding this issue.

How long will it be until people begin financing and running in-game banks/financial services with Interest rates, etc? I know I could use a 5kg loan, and paying 5500 back over time wouldn't be so bad!
Unless they introduce some combination of:
A) Binding contracts
C) Automatic paycheck withdraw (I take 5% of your AH sales, monster gold drops and vendoring) -I believe Eve did something like this with automatic payments to guild banks
D) Secured collateral loans (Don't pay me back by X date and I get to repossess your epic mount)
I don't see anybody making sizable loans. The default rate would be huge and Blizzard isn't going to enforce it.
