To be honest, while the old gods are beings of chaos, the curse of flesh itself is not particularly chaotic. Have you ever looked at a diagram of the human body? If you could look inside yourself, literally, you'd see everything in the right place, with only small variations from that diagram, and small variation between yourself and other humans. Now, the old gods, didn't create flesh, because we have trolls and the primative Quiraj to prove that, and the titans seem to be incapable of doing so, as evidenced by the stone guardians we see everywhere in Uldum and the Storm Peaks. When those guardians die, they fall to peices, bits of them coming off literally at the seams. When a troll or a tauren or indeed a human dies, it dies because it has been frozen, its soul sucked out, its muscles and tendons cut or its body set aflame. In short, the old god's curse of flesh didn't add chaos, it added *complexity* to the world. The tauren cannot be creations of the titans, because there is no analog to them in the titan cities, as there are for the Dwarfs (Earthen), Humans (Stone Vrykul), Gnomes (Mechagnomes) or the Tol'vir (Obsidian Guardians). Who knows, given enough time, the anubus-inspired constructs found in AQ might become flesh, or at least have fleshy cousins.
