This is the point I think you're missing, Star.

when I was a GM in wrath, my guild was pretty much what you suggested. and it WAS a logistical nightmare (as Aggy pointed out) because you're trying to appeal to such a large range of the player base. They rarely stay intact, and never really progress.
Well.. They do sometimes... But those aren't hardcore raiding guilds. They're community oriented guilds, usually very large with a lot of officers and structure, and focus on "community building" above raiding.
Eventually the people that DO progress and become skilled/motivated don't want to wait around for everyone else to catch up. so you're forced to pick between who you cater to.
Even those guilds that do maintain the structure you're suggesting; they're absurdly large, primarily because they know their turnover ratio is going to be through the roof.
Not to mention, ever trying running such a guild? It is a full time job.
I guess my point here is that I don't see what you want to accomplish.
