I think they should keep their current racials, unless Blizzard are really going to go to the trouble of giving new ones for each race of Death Knight. The existing racials are fine as they, not exactly balanced admittedly, but they've worked out pretty well so far. The issue seems to boil down to Draenei Death Knights retaining Gift of the Naaru, but as pointed out, the Naaru are rather forgiving types. Alternatively GoN could be considered a physical trait of the Draenei that they inherited from worshipping the Naaru over time. Besides, many racial traits make a lot of sense lore-wise, either because they are physiological abilties or because they are so inherent to the race as a concept. It seems ridiculous that Tauren Death Knight would be unable to Stomp, an Orc Death Knight would not be able to launch into a battle-fed rage, or a Troll Death Knight would lose its ability to regenerate. Some abilities even make more sense in the context of a Death Knight, such as Will of the Forsaken.In short no, racials are fine, seems silly to mess with them. We'll only hear more QQing about it later on.
