With off hand attacks being changed to a %chance to proc ther is no need to change the 2H fighting animation to incorporate Double Weapons.

From the SRD

Dire flails, dwarven urgroshes, gnome hooked hammers, orc double axes, quarterstaffs, and two-bladed swords are double weapons. A character can fight with both ends of a double weapon as if fighting with two weapons, but he or she incurs all the normal attack penalties associated with two-weapon combat, just as though the character were wielding a one-handed weapon and a light weapon.

Quarterstaff
A quarterstaff is a double weapon. You can fight with it as if fighting with two weapons, but if you do, you incur all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with two weapons, just as if you were using a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. A creature wielding a quarterstaff in one hand can’t use it as a double weapon—only one end of the weapon can be used in any given round

All we need is the Two Weapon Fighting Feat to grant you a stance you can toggle on and off to allow quaterstaves to be used as a Double Weapons rather than a 2H Weapons.

Also, I agree, quarterstaves should be treated as TWF NOT THF weapons.
