Think about the benefits.
- Melee friendly class. Leather armor.
- Carries axes, staves, shields and swords.
- Sure there are healers too...
- They already have a mount; built in horse, duh!.
- They already have relations with Horde (and maybe Alliance?)
Now, don't get me wrong, I think the idea of playing Poh from Kung Fu Panda sounds like fun. The first level probably has you bringing your noodle cart up the giant set of stairs, then bouncing back down to the bottom for an achievement?!?

This post idea came up as I was listening to the audio book, "Guild of the Cowry Catchers". The story contains humanoid characters that are part griffin, fox, lion and such (grishnard, foxlings). In addition, the main character, Gerard, has a pet griffin that he owns, rides and chats with. The audio is full cast (not just the author doing all the voices) and has a great story line. Despite the author's warning "for people who shop in the grown-up section of the bookstore", I would put it around PG13. A little bit of violence (beheadings) and "adult situations" subtext, but no actual visuals. A lot less than, say, trade chat.
