Actually, a notable thing about the Culling of Stratholme (I've done it a few times now) is that you, as the player, don't kill anyone innocent. You go after the waves of undead, but Arthas stays at the gate and kills the terrified townspeople fleeing. You can see it if you look away from the ghouls you're smacking now and then. Perhaps Blizzard thought that having to kill unturned Stratholme residents would be a touch too much. The instance is very interesting to play, and not too hard on heroic either.

Deathknight quests involve players cutting down cowering women in droves. I don't think Blizzard became squeamish. Rather, the timeline says that Arthas kills the innocents. If the players do it instead, it doesn't really reflect on Arthas.
