Blastwave's knockback can be downright handy to bounce people back to the tank's aoe when they wander off to the healer, if you plan to spam it so get the instant flame strike, then sure, it will get in the way, but if you're one of those mages that run into aggro related troubles while in melee range, I'd say keep that knockback.

I wouldn't easily choose glyph of blast wave. In my case the knock back effect is the reason why I finally feel comfortable as a vulnerable mage to be on healer-protection control. In fights where waves of adds from different directions pop up, I am constantly on the healers back, casting blast wave followed with frost nova when he gets attacked. The healers in my guild know this, so once the mobs are frozen on a safe distance and its AoE time, I'm not scared to draw a lot of agro while AoE'ing, because at that point my healer will give me as much attention as the tank in healing.
