This issue with humans and orcs stealing dev attention is ridiculous and it didn't become an issue until Metzen brought up the actual truth at Blizzcon that thematically when you break everything down about Warcraft to it's roots, it's symbolically best represented by humans and orcs. The aesthetic tone of each carries over into their faction and resounds within each of the races in some way they fight beside.
Before WOTLK, humans were barely seen in WOW more than any other race. If anything, the Night Elves and Gnomes seemed to be given more specific content whenever something wasn't just the generic alliance theme. They got their own private bases in Silithus, in Outland, and in Northrend. Humans were not focused on until Varian Wrynn finally showed back up and took his place as the leader of the Strormwind which became defacto Alliance capitol for obvious thematic reasons.
The Draenei should have gotten at most a new quest hub in Ashenvale in Cataclysm at this point when you really look at how long it takes for anything new chances for lore in this game to come along. The story tends to move in 2-3 year spurts, it's only been about 3 chances now for Draenei to have been given anything specific. They do deserve more, but I think it's wrong the way people all chuckle and roll their eyes together as soon as someone cites this trope about them being the red headed step children of WOW lore.
Their time is obviously coming and when it comes it's going to be huge, they are basically THE race you will see content for when the Burning Legion comes back.
