I wouldn't count this out, although - admittedly based on nothing substantive - I have a gut feeling that Iroh may have visited the Spirit World well before this time in his younger days.

Maybe. My first guess would be a twist on the Orpheus legend--that he had some idea of finding, and maybe even reviving, his dead son.

I don't really think that his previous journey had something to do with Ursa's disappearance; it's more that I think he may have some knowledge, as a result of his journey, that could help find her. OTOH, that doesn't really seem to fit with the creators' recent statement that they were going to resolve Ursa's disappearance in the finale, but that it got cut. If that's the case, it would seem the answer to the mystery must be rather simple.

For instance, I tell myself that the Order of the White Lotus actually has a secret role in keeping the Four Nations peaceable and balanced in the years between the passing of an Avatar and the maturation of the next Avatar.

I think that would make a lot of sense; I'm not sure the creators' were really thinking that deeply into it, but it's a cool idea and it seems to fit what we do know about the Order.
