This would help those who are doing big bosses with dragons, like the stygian dragon boss who can take out a greater dragon without much effort.

I do really like the evolution idea - enough with creationism in UO - but you really have to factor in the game balance. Remember when the greater dragons came out? ninja tamers not quite ruled pvp but made a huge impact. It took quite a while and many subtle changes for the other templates to catch up. Same goes for PvM - for two years every nerfherder and his brother farmed to no end with their dragons.
Again, I like the idea of creatures evolving and interacting (like the void creatures in ter mur). But when it comes to tameables, you have to be really careful. Maybe one can tame them only in certain evolution levels, before they become to powerful to be commanded by a puny human.
But I understand the want of tamers for a new cool pet. Maybe a mountable, flying 4-slot dragon with slightly less stats than a greater but with one or two cool abilities. How about being unable to use weapons or spells while riding the dragon but instead you get to use its firebreath?!

Every since I started UO, dragons have always seemed to be one of the core tamer pets (I am speaking as a non-tamer), though there was a period where other pets were favoured.
If they implemented a dragon breeding system, I don't think the end result should be any more powerful than a greater dragon really. But what I think it should offer is customizability of your little wyrmling. So as it grows and you train it, you can choose what sort of resists it develops, whether it gets an ice breath or fire breath, some of the main abilities it gets.
Ideally, you shouldn't be able to create a dragon that is good against everything, but the system should offer the ability to breed a dragon to face almost all threats. That way there's a market for bred dragons that are specialized in dealing with certain things.
But it definitely shouldn't just be piling on the HP and damage. =P
