Asking Baine would not have worked for a few reasons.1) The Alliance would be asking to build a military supply route through the heart of Horde territory. No matter how amicable relations between Baine and Jaina are the Horde and Alliance as wholes are still enemies.2) The purpose of the supply route was to reenforce Alliance operations in Stonetalon Mountains. That area is ancestral Tauren land. Why would Baine allow anyone to safe passage (let a lone build a supply route) through Horde territory when the purpose of said route is to supply an invasion of Tauren territory and attacks on his people? The Alliance had even gone so far as to ally with the Grimtotem. "Hey Baine, is it cool if we build a road through your town so that we can help the people who murdered your dad takeover Stontalon Mountains?"3) Due to the Night Elf's trade embargo against the Horde the Alliance couldn't even "sugar coat" the operation as the expansion of a trade route. "Why should we allow you to build a trade route through our territory when you refuse to trade with us?" would be the natural response.
