Probably to reduce the amount of crying between Monks, Druids and Hunters about the polearms/staves.
At least we retain the ability to equip them for aesthetic reasons.

Mongoose bite and counterattack. Nobody even remembers those anymore. Oh... and lacerate.

Personally I think having our bow on our back looks awesome. Makes more sense too, rather than running around with a melee weapon displayed that we almost never used, then when we went to shoot, pull a bow out of our asss.

Monks

Edit: To be clear, they didn't want to have to juggle a stat stick on the new class (i.e. Relic, or Thrown?)

I get what you are saying, it makes sense but it doesn't, because how could you shoot a man at point blank range with a weapon such as Don Santos' Famous Hunting Rifle (hope that's the right ID >_<) it's just to big to make sense :P. anyways, I just miss having dual wield, plus with the xmorg, it just swarms my mind with xmorg ideas that I cannot do anymore, unless I just wanna run around Stormwind like that for looks. anyways.

On a side note, I do like carrying the bow/gun on my back. you are right about that, it is cool. but I think it'd be cool to have the gun on your back + weapons at your hips.

Stat sticks are neither fun nor interesting and they clog loot tables.

Yes, because being closer to a target would impede a lump of metal's ability to punch through a target.
