Contrary to what you suggest, size IS a big issue. A small Annihilan would be an immersion breaker and a big one would make locating/targeting enemy NPCs/players very difficult.
This might not be the kind of issue that your average forumgoer considers problematic, but I can almost guarantee you that it'd be a deal-breaker from a game design perspective.

Ok if they make it a guardian demon like i suggests, it would be available for in a small window of time. It doesnt have to be huge or small. You would just have to design it right. I say just slightly larger than the abyssal guardian we already summon. That seems plenty big for me.
Also you got to remember, our demons are ALOT smaller than demons out in the game.
If the next expansion is burning legion related, then expect this to happen...
I know this is going to happen.
In 5 months blizzcon will happen and announce features. You can thank me now.
Reduce the cooldowns of Doomguard and Infernal to 3-5 mins (and reduce the damage they do and up for 30sec? but still on the same cd).
Make Pitlord the only 10 min cd, as it can be used for aoe and execution.
This will make the doomguard a nice turrent/totem for pve/pvp. Infernal will be a nice stun in pvp, but actually usuable in pve in aoe situations; In most fights, there are not enough adds up or long enough to count the infernal, but with each being able to be used twice or thrice in an encounter, you can actually use an infernal in the situation they are called for, mass aoe in short amount of time.
And you will not need to worry about deciding between doomguard and infernal for aoe/single target and which comes out on top with the 10 min cd.
I cant wait till blizzcon so i can show these naysayers blizz actually listens to player suggestions and feedback.
There's going to be a pit lord we can summon in the upcoming expansion.
You can count on it!
The Pit Lord is awesome because he is terribly OP and huge in the scenario. If blizzard ever put a pitlord in our spellbook it would be a very watered down lame version and be on a huge cooldown. I mean just look at doomguard/infernal and how awesome those are on a whopping 10 minute cooldown..
Please, no, no more pets. Demo feels like a kindergarden already.
Horrible idea. I want something that I can really control, something I can rely on, not being afraid of my major DPS CD getting an epilepsy seizure in the middle of the fight.
Not to mention that WoW demons don't really look cool. I don't know where do you all get the impression. Diablo III demons or Heroes VI Inferno, now those are some demons that look imposing. A big stegosaurus with a polearm is really nothing that cool. Imo, the only cool looking demon is Voidlord, others are just meh.

i have to agree with you about not wanting anymore pets.Its not a bad idea or anything, i just think we have enough pets as it.Plus I've always felt like when they start to make our pets the main aspect of the class by giving them really neat abilities instead of the actual warlock it makes the pet seem more important and awesome than the actually warlock, which is kinda lame.I want my warlock to be the awesome one and my pet to be my supporter not the other way around
A Pitlord would only ever be added as a cosmetic replacement of an Infernal.
Blizzard aren't going to add anything that would make existing spells worthless (Doomguard/Infernal).
2 words...yes please!!!
Pretty interesting idea tbh.
The only realistic proposition I see is optionally replacing the Infernal with the Pit Lord, then maybe people would actually use that Demon. If not only for shits and giggles lol
It is better to have raided and wiped, then to never have raided at all.
