Actually in the 5th issue of the WoW magazine, they did say a interesting things about Worgen/Goblin. Like how Worgen the decision was argued about for awhile which faction would get them and they even debated about Goblins joining the Alliance or being the first Neutral race where they would get to choose who they join.Then after they pick what faction gets which race, then the lore would be adjusted to follow that.

Which was a very interesting article. They were planning on giving the Horde the worgen due to their "dark/savage" nature and thought they would be a better fit, and the goblins would be in the Alliance.Then they realized that the Alliance already had a "jokey" race and with the darker tone that the Horde was taking in Cataclysm, having the goblins would provide some laughter/comic relief, which it did.So they swapped them because they wanted the Alliance to have a "darker/savage" race, which actually never happened since the worgen that the Alliance got are a lot more similar to night elves in every respect, have a love for protecting nature and all around nice guys, hence the "furry night elves" comments that get thrown around a lot on the forums. But I think that's due to the nature of the Alliance. Having a race that sticks out like a sore thumb doesn't work as well for the Alliance as it does with the Horde ::points to Blood Elves::Funny how it all works out sometimes....

The 'darkier and edgier' thing might have worked.. if they had done anything after hitting Darnassus. "Welcome to your new tree, your story is over." If you travel far enough, you might meet some other Worgen actually in Worgen form. One will be a happy-go-lucky Gypsy who's buddied up with a Blood Elf, and the other isn't even a Gilnean.
