I think that, for me, Cataclysm will really be the test of whether or not Blizzard is "abandoning" the Draenei. I was willing to accept their absense from WotLK considering BC and the general human themes of Arthas, but I will be extremely dissapointed if there isn't any Draenei activity in Cataclysm. I want quest hubs, new settlements, new stuff going on!Blizzard themselves admitted that Draenei were really out of left field, so who knows what direction they'll take them in. I can certainly see them standing alongside the Night Elves, defending them against the encroaching Orcs. I just hope that it is *some* direction, instead of letting them stagnate.

Don't forget the NPCs at places like Ashenvale. And also don't forget that WoW will have 12 playable races now, 2 new, which naturally means that those surely will be in the focus. Who else? Blizz knows... but there's still 10, and they can't support each one.

Eldoron@ Of course not, but the draenei has so much potential. Since they are pwetty much being pushed around by Varian - much like the majority of the Horde races come Cataclysm, it could make some interesting scenarios that can make our view of Cataclysm as a "Horde-expansion" turn. I mean, just think about it. The draeneis closest ally is the night elves who's home are being burned and slaughtered by the Horde. As far as we know, Varian doesn't REALLY mind this, despite being their largest foothold in Kalimdor. I can see some very interesting political conflicts involving the night elves and draenei against the rest of the Alliance as they are being forgotten.As the Cenarion Circle apparently doesn't even mind this either, I think that the draenei can make a good "replacement" for them. But of course, this is all up to Blizzard if they want to develop the draeneis. If anything, the draeneis could be one of the biggest factors to make the Alliance more interesting come Cataclysm.

Hopefully Blizz will actually let the Draenei/Night Elves finish rebuilding Forest Song in Cata if the horde hasn't gotten to it.

Aren't we all forgetting that the earthen ring might be making a comeback as far as factions go? With Dranei being the shaman representatives of the Alliance (Soon to be joined by the wildhammers) We may have Nobundu and co having some visibility and influence on what we're doing about all these borders to the elemental plains opening up.
