I also like the idea! I'm not affected myself, but it would certainly bring more people back to classic.
That would be a good idea as long as it's the character only and nothing more >.< (gear/items etc)
I'd actually say:
If people DID quit before renewal and never logged in during renewal, they should be granted the right to take over some items. Like currently equipped gear but no MVP cards / god items and no storage / zeny.
If people actually played a bit during renewal, but quit shortly afterwards, they should still be allowed to transfer to classic, but in that case only the character and no gear/items at all.
I'm not sure about people who actually got 3rd job. Reverting them to 99/70 seems to be really hard to do (and might cause exploits). If they are "trans" 3rd job, I could imagine making them 1/1 High Novice, though...
