Is there any criteria at all to choosing to start in BT versus HF? I think I read that HF might be more pleasing to the eye which kind of makes me lean that way, but then if that's the truth BT might be slightly less crowded. What don't I know? Aside from this one relatively minor thing, how will anyone choose? Are there more quests in one zone than the other? Is one arranged to appeal more toward the horde and the other more toward the alliance? Or are they perfectly (for lack of a better word) equal and I'm reduced to eeny meeny miney mo?

As a very general assuming-ish rule, blood elves and undead would probably enjoy the story in Howling Fjord, and orcs/tauren/troll in Borean Tundra. For Alliance, pretty much a toss-up. Personally though, I think the initial way your arrival is greeted in Borean Tundra as an alliance celebrity would more appeal to paladins, warriors and priests, or other "I'm a big damn hero!" type people. Also, Borean Tundra feels a bit more exotic to someone who already lives in northern europe and has fjords and fjelds outside the window.

There's no huge difference in quest rewards, so I think it will come down to player preference and what specific quests you enjoy. Most people I have spoken to actually ended up doing both the zones before moving on to Grizzly Hills or Dragonblight.I personally think Howling Fjord is a better-lookign zone with more interesting lore, but another person could easily argue the opposite.
