The Naga, all of them are mutated by the old gods, thus they are controlled by old gods. Do you honestly think a Naga would be like "yup, i'm over that N'Zoth guy, he's a dick. Can I join up with the Horde/Alliance?"
Ogres surely could be DK's, Naga though is a bit of stretch, because they are very dangerous foes themself and their presence within the scourge definetly needs a retcon.
All in all the racial restrictions are one of the few things blizzard has done well as far as I'm concerned. They still haven't allowed tauren rogues and the worst thing so far were some of the MoP constellations, which make sense considering the races have intermingled for quite some time and there is no reason to reject a tauren that wants to be a servant of the light. They also said no to panda dk's - thank god.
Worgen existed outside the walls of Silverfang, Gilneas, and as far as Duskwood, so it's not entirely improbable that some got swept into the mess of DK's, same with Goblins.
Pandaren Have been secluded on an Isle shrouded and hidden away from the world for how many centuries or millennia? The only one we know of that left said Isle was Chen, correct? So why would they have been involved with DK's?
As to Naga being DK's. Couldn't care less, I'm sure there could be lore reasons for them to not exist as there are reasons for them to exist.
At times, the frequent redundancy and stupidity of these forums, turns me into an argumentative ass.
To most of you, I apologize in advance. I will attempt to be nicer.

we know the naga couldnt have landed on the beach, as the only beach at the time was controlled by the scarlet crusade, and there was no evidence that naga had even visited that beach
we know pandaren got to northrend because theres undeniably canon evidence of this happening, we dont have any undeniably canon evidence of them going to the eastern kingdoms at all beofre MoP
the goblins are from the steamweedle cartel, who had members stationed at light hope pre-cata, and had a flight master at the border of the thondoril river, which marks the border between the western/eastern plaguelands
there is a beach, naga were in northrend, naga were in the isle of quel'danas when it was still being ruled over by the scourge, the entire top of northern lordaeron has easy access to the beach where murlocs minions of the naga and neptulon were, where there is murlocs there is naga nearby.
your excuse for the worgen and goblin retcon works just as well for naga
plenty of places for the scourge to get naga blizzard just needs to put one there
i'd prefer the new races not be playable as death knights strictly due to the timeline of events it does not make sense.
Does it impact my gameplay? no.
Would i care enough to write blizzard an angry letter? no.
Oi! Hey you! Will you check out my latest podcast episode that discusses Cryptozoology (Yeti's / Bigfoot / the New Jersey Devil)!"
That said, I'm very much for adding a splinter faction of Naga who simply want to be free from the Old God's influence having the option of Death Knight with special flavor dialog from some of the NPCs around there to indicate how rare your race is among the Scourge. (Primarily Razuvious, Siouxsie and Mograine.) Same could go for Ogres. In fact, meeting Ogres in a Burning Legion expansion as a more organized, militarized group under a half-ogre would make them a viable Horde faction and allow Naga to be an Alliance faction taken in by the Night Elves. (In much the same way as they did the Highborn.)
If you can't make fun of something, its probably not worth taking seriously.
the scourge DIDNT rule over quel'danas, the legion had a larger hold over the isle than the scourge did
the only scourge there were mindless and leaderless, and so wouldnt have had the presence of mind to send naga corpses to acherus, acherus was also resurrecting heroes from the plaguelands and surrounding areas, as evidenced in the starter zone by corpses being unloaded and raised from wagons, which logically leads to the assumption that the corpses were taken from nearby, if they HAD used corpses from further afield they wouldnt have bothered to hold them in wagons
those murlocs were never specified to be under the control of naga, only a few groups of murlocs have been shown to be linked (aka made slaves) to the naga
that wasnt an excuse NOR was it a retcon, as there were pre-existing explanations for goblin/worgen Dks as there were goblin/worgen corpses in scourge-occupied areas that could transport those corpses to a necropolis
northrend could be the only place the scourge could easily acquire naga corpses (although they would be more rotted than a twice-killed forsaken), however there is no evidence acherus stopped at northrend to acquire corpses to be raised as a death knight
one of the reasons metzen gave for worgen death knights being playable is that basically "necromancy didnt go away when the lich king died" so if the ebon blade arent doin it SOMEBODY is making death knights either by force or by recruitment.
and monks (brewmasters before mists) was a class/profession pretty much exclusively used by dwarves and pandaren, the only monks that existed were holy monks which have no relation to brewmaster monks.

and maybe if you read the daily quests or any of the quel'danas lore then you would know that there were no demons there at all until kael'thas returned in the last patch and summoned them there, which is why they had to retake the island from the scourge who kael'thas left the island to after he destroyed the sunwell and left for outland back when it was corrupted.
thosde scourge were under the command of dar'khan who was in charge of all scourge operations north of epl, which means pre ghostlands quest those scourge DID have a leader and were not just walking around doing nothing

gameplay wise i can make a pandaren monk, defeat all the evils in outland, singlehandedly defeat the lich king, destroy deathwing, meet garrosh a year before he became the warchief, et cetera et cetera
only a select few can create dks (baroness anastari who we killed in stratholme is the only one shown who could do this other than the lich king)
dar'khan was in control of the scourge in the ghostlands/eversong woods, he was also killed before by blood elf adventurers before the naga/legion/shattered sun invaded quel'danas (belfs have to kill dar'khan to get into the horde>they go to outland with the horde>we 'kill' kael'thas> he flees to quel'danas bringing his belfs and starts summoning the legion>shattered sun and naga pursue him)
