ESO Alliance Choice: Hint, No Elves

In Elder Scrolls Online there are 3 alliances to choose from: Ebonheart Pact, Daggerfall Covenant, and the Aldmeri Dominion.  Each alliance has 3 separate race choices, plus the Imperial race if you order that edition.

I'm actually not very familiar with the ESO back story, so I am pretty neutral to start with.  However,  when looking at the races, I can't help but notice that Ebonheart and the Aldmeri have Elf races.  That immediately drops them down a notch.  Also, I've been playing Ebonheart in the beta, so I don't want to repeat that content at launch.

So that leaves me with the Daggerfall Covenant, which is elf free.  I am seriously considering getting the Imperial edition, so I would play as one of them.  How about you, which alliance are you considering and why?
