I have a question.What's the deal with the Horde-friendly ogres in Brackenwall Village, Dustwallow Marsh? Is there any particular reason they have allied themselves with one of the player factions?

Yes, there is. They were originally hostile to the Horde until Rexxar challenged their leader and defeated him, becoming head of the ogres. One of the more interesting facets of ogre society is their tendency to follow the strongest, as seen in Dire Maul (if you kill king Gordok you become King of the Ogres) and the Blade's Edge Ogri'la quests.

As argued here ( http://bit.ly/aPwEVd ) I really would like to see the Stonemaul Ogres getting some lore development in Cataclysm. Most people don't even seem to realise that the Horde has a (admittedly) small clan of Ogres in it's service. Whilst obviously not a playable race, I would like to see them as a more visible element of the Horde, much as the Mag'har have in WotLK. Let's not forget that the Stonemaul Ogres have a good amount of experience fighting the Black Dragonflight too, and would likely be eager for some payback for having lost their home. Also, there seems to be quite a bit of naval combat going on in Cataclysm, and the Stonemaul provide the Horde with it's Juggernaught vessels (although we're not sure exactly where they're being built!).

@WulfkinCataclysm spoilers incoming:Both the Stonemaul and Dunemaul clan of ogres will play a bigger part in Cataclysm. From the alpha leaks I've seen that there is a new Stonemaul settlement in Feralas. Some Horde goblins are also recruiting Dunemaul ogres into their ranks, as there is now a 'Dunemaul recruitment center' in Tanaris.
