Lorewise it doesn't make much sense that the Horde (especially orcs) are allowed inside the city, but of course, Blizzard tends to ignore things like logic sometimes for the sake of the game.

Actually, it makes perfect sense. Dalaran has always been a human/high elven nation. The majority of the high elves became blood elves. A number of them were citizens of Dalaran and members of the Kirin Tor. These members probably left (or were banned from) the Kirin Tor when the blood elves joined the Horde. However, they now want back in. As a matter of fact, I think it was stated in-game that the blood elf Archmage Aethas Sunreaver was the one responsible for letting the Horde into Dalaran and not Rhonin (although he probably was the one who approved it).Besides this, there's also the fact that the Horde has mages as well, so it would be in the best interest of both groups to work together against Malygos.Seems like a perfectly reasonable explanation to me.

actually Rhonin became friend of an orcish warrior named broxigar who fough the legion with krasus and him in the sundering so I guess he has a few reasons to think some of the horde races can be trusted. Also he seems to be very open minded lorewise whhen it comes to gathering help form other races in times of war for example if you take a look at his memorable quotes in wowiki there´s one where a night elf noble says something about having tauren in their cites is barbaric and Rhonin asks him if would they rather have demons? like saying "we need all the help we can get so don´t complain"

Beyond the influence of the Blood Elves and their redemption after the events at the sunwell, there's also the matter of the red dragonflight. Alexstratza has seen fit to accept the Hordes help in the fight against Malygos, so who are the Kirin Tor to turn us away?Also, take a look at the history of the new Horde. We've comitted ourselves full force to the battles against the old gods, the black dragonflight, the Legion, and the full movement of our troops against the Lich King. At this point (I'm not including the events at Angrathar) we've shown that we all have the same goals, and are willing to lay down our lives in the defence of Azeroth against any foe.

It probably doesn't help that Undercity spends a fair amount of time in direct opposition to Dalaran's activities in Lordaeron . . .

The dragonflights are neutral however, either with both factions or against both factions. So I don't see why Alexstraza accepting horde has anything to do with the Kirin Tor, fully Alliance side until now, accepting the horde into the city.
