1) The Tauren were on the brink of extinction. The flaw here is that they were ancient allies of the Night Elves because of the Altered Timeline. Now the question here is why wouldn't the Night Elves, who at that time were predominant over Kalimdor, have aided the Tauren? Was it due to the Tauren being too prideful? No, remember they accepted Thrall's aid. It seems as if they just didn't care.
2) With that, it can be said that they were only friends with the Sentinles, and the druids wouldn't have cared. But the flaw here is that because the Tauren weren't brand spanking new to druidism with WoW, they were druids previously. It was even said that Cenarius taught them directly. So it just doesn't make too much sense if you ask me.
And due to noticing my question is a bit.. Well, all over the place, this is a nice way to tie it in.
