You're right, but that doesn't change the fact that the value of armor penetration as an individual stat is greatly reduced in the presence of sunder or expose armor. The point is that, relative to other DPS stats like agility or AP, armor pen is a stat that becomes extremely weak in the presence of a mob debuff you should expect to see in a raid (and possibly 5-man, depending on your group) environment.The fault of this is not because of the lich king transformation of it from being a static value to a percentage-based rating, but because of the way it interacts with sunder and expose. If it calculated its reduction on the target's base armor rather than its current armor, it would be a lot less retarded, but in its current state, it's the weakest DPS state for just about every physical DPS class in the game.
