Considering yesterday's screenshot with the tauren-like being, that would actually make sense... maybe some of the other races travelled to Pandaria back then, and maybe they have developed differently... I remember that the dwarfs described in the WOTA-novels were much more like their proto-form (the earthen) and less than modern dwarfs, so I wouldnt be surprised if we'd see some other Azerothian races there too. Then again, I dont know if that would really make sense, because so far, we have hardly ANYTHING about pandas in Kalimdor or EK... if there was trade going on back then, or if some of the races visited Pandaria, it's highly unlikely that there are no written records, no hint at all, no archeological artifacts hinting at the Pandaren, unless whoever got to Pandaria was absolutely forbidden to leave or forbidden to talk/write about it after his/her return, or any tracks were erased by the Pandas.Thats actually one thing that bothers me a tiny bit there... if Pandas are "established in lore", why are there no signs at all, other than Genn's keg-pieces or whatever they are? No records, no hints, no stories. Because it makes you wonder whether the Mists covering Pandaria actually changed something, because there are no signs of them from before the "disappearance" of Pandaria to be found anyway. Sure, Blizz might have tried to avoid any premature hint at the Pandas being added to the game, but if there was any contact between any of the other races and Pandaren before the Sundering, its weird there are no stories or memories of it. Even if its been 10.000 years, the elfs should remember, and I dont know if "that continent that used to be there" would be so totally forgotten...Just rambling, sorry for the wall of text =)
