It's very plausible to lvl as arcane, aswell as fire. Frost is the spec with the least amount of downtime and you have some pretty awesome AoE killing. But that does not mean it's the only way to lvl.
If you decide to lvl as Arcane you have to be prepared to run out of mana alot, you will die alot at first and it might seem like it's taking ages to progress. But if you find it fun, then who cares really? You also get alot of really great things in the arcane tree to lvl with. An instant AB is always nice, you can choose to have instant invisibillity, so if things go wrong you can always bail, not to mention the SP boost you get of Arcane can really be felt when you are below 80.
I lvled as fire in the beginning of TBC, with the weirdest spec, not taking anything of real use to me, but I still loved it ^^ Yes, it took ages, yes, I most likely spend 45 mins out of an hour sitting down drinking, yes I died on something like every 3rd mob, but it was fun. All that matters.
So /cheer for you! Go arcane and never look back! :D Go nuts!
I mostly agree with Nilla, all specs are very much viable for leveling, Frost is just picked the most due it's good mana regeneration, it's great AoE capabilities and Frost Barrier for survivability.
I leveled as Fire back when I started during BC, and I never had much problems and found it really fun. It's a little slower than Frost, but as long as you enjoy yourself, and don't care about being Level 80 as fast as possible, than that's all that matters.
One thing Nilla said I don't agree with though, and that's the dying part. If you adjust to your new spec, meaning your mostly going to be single target killing mobs and not AoE'ing them as you do with Frost, than you shouldn't die that more than with Frost. Mana Shield, instant Invisibility, Slow and an powerful instant cast (Arcane Barrage) should be more than enough to get you out of any situation, not to mention you still have Frost Nova and Cone of Cold!
