I doubt that upping graphics would also up the minimum requirements unless they completely rewrote the entire graphics engine. That would just be some different rendering methods for those without crap video cards. However, Blizz probably won't go and improve graphics universally, just with new content. (like out BC has larger landscape viewing distances, less 3d tricks due to flying, and probably some skybox stuff, since there's neat things going up in those)

Wrath of the Lick King probably will probably push it's graphics a little farther, but probably nothing of epic proportions. High-end graphics seem to dwell in the FPS category, strangely enough compared to the massive environments of MMOs where they could use good graphics instead of small environments.

Exporting a model from the MPQ files into Maya, Poser, whatever, and then throwing rendering them is a lot different than having to dynamically pull data from the mpq, shade/render it in real time. That's not counting having to keep track of NPCs, players, and effects around you.

Oh, no doubt. I'm not saying that but compared to mmorpg's being released today the engine is to be sure sub-par. I'm not arguing that they should upgrade it, only that they don't give a shit even if the need was there.
