Maybe, but we will never know.

I agree that JRRT was approaching mixing Elvish and Mannish ancestry to the Orcs, but according to Humphrey Carpenter, he was even edging towards a purely mannish ancestry for them when he was "surpris'd by death." IIRC

And ultimately that might be what Tolkien would have done. And that would have been a major revision to his chronicle of the First Age.
