I agree completely with Medeii. Establishing at the start of a run that "Need is for need, greed is for vendor. That's why those buttons are there in the first place." really eliminates a lot of the wasted time and drama. The concept of "Who will make best use of the item" is something reserved for guilds where you get to enjoy the advantages of your fellow player improving. If I'm in a guild run, I'm fine with the healer getting an item over me because I get to enjoy the benefits of their improved healing. In a PuG, I will never see the other player again.However, I have an unusual view on BoE items. With the girth of BoE epics in raids, and good BoP blues in dungeons, there are a lot of items out there that people can really use. For example, the Dark Runic Mantle that drops in Utgarde Pinnacle was very hard to come by on the auction house for awhile. However, it was easily the best pre-raid mage shoulder item you could get. My policy on items like that was that you can roll need if you are really going to equip it. The reason? If the item is never on the auction house, how else is the player going to be able to get it?
