If the fact that the only used frontline is swords and it takes if not 0 close to 0 casualties against a top tier tower I don't know what else could call for a nerf. The only reason people use dwarf at all is because of bombardiers. Considering that archers are not far behind though and humans have a much more balanced unit choice I don't see how any other race even comes close to comparing to human.
As it is the scales are heavily tipped towards humans but if that means that they can not be nerfed because the majority of the population will whine about it then they might as well remove the other races because they are not even close to being competent enough to start buffing units from the other three races appropriately.
I agree with what you said and I too was initially disappointed when learning of the decision to not nerf Virion's resurrection, but it appears they made that choice because it had little affect on how strong swords are atm. So, hopefully they will find the right solution to give the game a little more balance.
