As long as the raid damage is lowered, it'd be fine. But when they're making you take tons of damage (hi Eredar Twins), what else can you do? Stack Resto Shaman?As long as raid design takes this into account, I see no issues at all.

Yup, and thats all they did. Thus making 4 spots in every raid for one of the least played specs in the game, leaving all the other healers out in the cold.Anyone willing to play a resto shaman could easily find a spot in the best guilds, thus leaving all the medium guilds to struggle through content with subpar healers (for the AOE heavy task)

Yep, this does seem to counter Blizzard's whole "bring the player, not the class" philosophy they've applied to tanking. With the new LHW glyph and Improved Water Shield talent, shamans gained a lot in terms of single target healing efficiency and output (not quite as good as a pally, but a lot closer than we used to be). It would have been nice to take a stab at tank healing knowing there are other classes capable of carrying the AoE heals load, but it looks like it'll still be chain heal whack-a-mole for the foreseeable future.
