Massive does not describe the world. Massive describes the number of players.
Online Roleplaying Game
Well, by that same reasoning, me playing Crystal Chronicles with a buddy online over the Wii counts as a MMORPG.
(the number of players is massive)
(we are playing multiplayer)
(we are playing online)
(it is a RPG)
(yes that is extreme nit-picking)
Yet we still need to include the Diabolo series in the 'MMORPG' genre if your interpretation of MMORPG is what holds true.
If FFXIV ends up being a game like Diabolo then I think we will all be disappointed. (Yeah I will play that game, and so will almost everyone else, and we will like)
I just won't pay a subscription fee for that. And I don't think a game like that will hold a candle in longevity to a game like FFXI or WoW or DAoCamelot or Ultima Online.

Actually it's called "Libel"... and only if it is fabricated, but hey, you are the admin.
