Many of us chose our races before we either cared about PvP and/or knew enough about the game to make an informed choice. While people may say "lol too bad!" or "noob should've picked the right race" the fact of the matter is that you can change almost any bad decision in WoW, with the exception of racials. Pick some crappy talents? Respec! Choose the wrong quest reward? A GM can help!
And racials like WotF, Escape Artist, Stoneform, Hardiness, and Warstomp are just lightyears better than such gems as wisp form, berzerking, shadowmeld, etc.
They've balanced many abilities because of arena fairness. Lowering durations on PvP versions of spells (think Tongues, any CC) was done to balance arenas. Hell, they're completely revamping Priest racials for "balancing's" sake. Why couldn't the same be done for racials?
