my guess would be that rather than an all-or-nothing rush strategy, the essential idea would be for the Orcs to (more capably) apply pressure in the early stages of a game. As long as they can make reasonable use of these particular advantages the Orc player is utilising their faction's strengths appropriately. Where expecting to match other armies in their key and defining abilities would obviously be less than judiciously balanced.
for myself I am a little dissapointed to hear that Elves are primarily defensive, which is not typical of my style; although of course defence has it's necessary place and time in the course of battle.
