As I said before Show me the source where Dota 2, Atlantica online or Moby Frankes says they were inspired by the WC3 Tinker hero. Let me guess you probably think Crono trigger was inspired by the WC3 Tinker hero.

I enjoyed killing Tinkers in DotA with my anti-mage (DH inspired).
The same works for a Demon Hunter playable class. The most logical thing to be is a new generation of Demon Hunters trained by the first generation of Demon Hunters trained by Illidan. Illidan himself may return if he gets a redemption story, but I think his story must be told first before the class gets introduced, otherwise he doesn't need to have anything to do with the player class. It's like Arthas having nothing to do with the training of your player Death Knight. So would your Demon Hunter have the same demonic abilities as Illidan? No. Would they strive to be like Illidan? Not necessarily. That's the path that Warlocks are taking, and that's fine, because Illidan is a demon. Right now we have no one to champion the Demon Hunter class, so it's difficult to associate the class as anything other than Illidan's club of fanboys. Death Knights already have their identity, you're part of Darion Mograine's Knights of the Ebon Hand. It's clear that you have nothing to do with Arthas or the Scourge.

Immediately following that, Warlocks started getting Demon Hunter abilities.
A "redemption" story for DHs sounds kind of silly. It makes since for DKs because they're fallen champions. Demon Hunters actively choose to embrace the darkness of demonic magic (just like Warlocks).

Most if not all of the original death knights were killed, but they were brought back under a different design. Why can't Demon Hunters undergo the same treatment?
Transforming temporarily into a demon to fight demons = using your enemy's power to fight him. Becoming a demon = becoming your enemy. The difference is absolutely huge lorewise.Considering that Demon Hunters could transform themselves into demons and use demonic powers, I'm not seeing the issue here.
Warlocks didn't have a single bit of lore from Demon Hunters. Mechanics are shared, so I won't deny the problem doesn't exist, but it is rather easy to solve, if there would be need for it.
Altruis the Sufferer about Illidan:
"I still have respect for Illidan. Without him I would not have found my path.
He is not who he once was, however. His soul has been corrupted by power, his mind has been twisted by defeat. He has become what I am sworn to destroy and his pet servants, the Illidari, are as much of an abomination as any demon of the Burning Legion."
"Some demons pledge allegiance to no one but themselves. A true enemy of demons finds and destroys his prey regardless of affiliation, however."
