The in-game NPC Villagers, often referred to as Testificates, were originally planned to be Pigmen, much like the Nether mobs. (Except not undead.) They would have the standard player model like Zombies and Zombie Pigmen, but with a Pig's skin. The second Skin Pack for the Xbox 360 version contains a Pigman skin as a slight nod to this.
