Oil Mechagnomes: Missing-in-Action?

I am using this thread to curate the evidence that suggests mechagnomes will be one of Battle for Azeroth's remaining allied races:
  • During the Alliance war campaign the gnome Kelsey Steelspark says that she would like to be a machine someday
  • In Vol'dun there is an unknown and mysterious tinker-yard that is seemingly only inhabited by its mechanical guards
  • In Tiragarde Sound there is a gnomish mechanical sub-zone called 'The Rusted Vault' and its quest-giving NPC tells you that all of the gnomes of Boralus have mysteriously vanished - and the NPC says he will will contact you when there is more information
  • A number of gnomish gadgets were found in the game's files recently and there was the '8.0 Islands - Junker Gnome Caverns - Prototype' that was discovered too
  • The fact that during the siege of Zuldazar, Gelbin Mekkatorque is so badly injured that his body had to be frozen - suggesting he may return as a machine-augmented gnome
So how do you weigh the odds for mechagnomes being one of the upcoming allied races - is there any other evidence/counter-evidence that supports their addition to the game?

There's also this piece of broadcast text from Siege of Zuldazar where Gallywix says this about Mekkatorque:

Seriously, this guy is really obsessed with machines. Makes me think he wants to be part robot or somethin'!

Funny enough, becoming a mechagnome is the only way to survive in the irradiated parts of Gnomeregan.

EDIT: Come to think of it, Mechagnomes and Gilgoblins are going to be very useful allies underwater against Nazjatar.

Watch my Warcraft 3 stuff in either YouTube, BitChute, DailyMotion, DTube, FruitLab, or Brighteon.
