Well the human Sword specialization might come in handy, but only if you can actually GET a sword.

There is currently 1 sword in Mists, from what I can tell, and it is off second boss in TOES.

The Pandaren racial is pretty awesome for double food buff. 600 in a stat is nice, it is like having 3 primary professions.

What positives are there over Humans for PvP?

Food buff won't help in pvp though.

Either or imo. Palm is really nice to use on magic immune targets to be able to kite, or CC on a healer, but about 50% of the time I find it's dodged or parried (it's physical, so I guess it goes off of my melee stats).

Human racial isn't as big a factor right now because there's no OMG PVE GEAR and with pvp power we have yet to see if it's going to be that big of a deal in later patches.

Rep gain is nice though, since reps seem to be a big deal now a days.

Pandaren then Worgen for PvE, none of the Racials are game breaking on Alliance side PvE wise. Im still on the fence about going Pandaren or not it does seem enticing.

If you go straight PvE, do Pandaren.

If you will do PvP and PvE regularly, go Human.

Ultimately, though, pick whichever one looks best. I don't pick any race I feel really goofy in. Ask Xuin, he made that mistake lolz.

I too was thinking of going pandaran o my mage, then I read about Xiun feeling "goofy" and now am rethinking it. I love my goblin animations but goblins are just nasty vile little bastards.

I ported a Priest to old Dal last night and he fell to his doom. Not everyone is quick on the uptake. :)
