Although I (partially) sympathize with casual raiders not being able to get this mount, I think it's important for Blizzard to make sure the community remains distinctive. Let's face it – this is simply a fashion accessory, not an integral part to the game mechanics. Sure, if I were a casual raider, I'd like to get one. That'd be pretty cool. However, as a less-than-casual raider, I'd feel like shit if everything I tried really hard to get was won easily by other people due to a content patch. Casuals should remember that they should NOT get everything non-casuals get; there has to be a measure of distinction. The gap between casuals and non-casuals has been closing, and, quite frankly, I find Blizzard is risking the development of a completely homogenized player base. I could accept people looking cooler than me if that allows me to not look like everyone else, and I'd hope that most casuals could share that sentiment.

But it is an integral part of the game mechanics. Each of these mounts counts towards the 50/75/100 mounts achievements. By making these proto-drakes unable to be gotten, they are hindering the casual players'(ie the ones who achievements are really made for) chance at completing the mount achievements.
