...I'm expecting a whole other level to happen where someone figures out how to blend MMORPG with single player, so you can have individual adventures running on your own machine, but when you leave that area, seemlessly join back in with the fully populated world. The individual adventure would, however, be overseen by the service provider, it would just be closed off from being accessed by other players...

That's almost an exact discription of Grendels Cave. You see, it's based on the Beowulf saga, where all of the few thousand players are each on their own personal quest to kill Grendel, but they're all in the same world. Except for the part about the personal quest being sealed off, thats it. But Beowulf (the guy who made it) keeps a close eye on everyone so they don't cheat. Not that their are any known ways to cheat.
