The reason they need to do competitive dps is because buffs dont stack anymore. Let me use enhancement as an example. Deathknights now have every major buff that an enhancement shaman can give, AND they can tank. The only reason to bring an enhancement shaman now would be for DPS. It would fit with blizzards current mindset to make sure that buffer/support (When was the last time you saw a retadin heal?) classes can do competitive DPS.The concept of pure dps classes is asinine. No class is pure anything.Rogues bring CC, evasion tanking, and in wrath a MD effect.Hunters bring MD, kiting, CC, etc.You could make the assertion that any of these classes are support classes in one way or the other.Just because someone can spec into a different raid roll else doesn't make it a support class.
