When I compare current raiding with my BC experience and Vanilla experience, they have come a long way to "bring the player, not the class". Sure, there are exceptions -- a couple of people have noted Instructor in Naxx 25, and doing Sarth with drakes up favors at least some class stacking. But mostly what I'm noticing is the way that my own guild now talks about raid composition. Instead of saying "we need an x and a y to fill", they are saying "need a dps, preferably ranged and two healers." I don't remember raid comps being that loose before Wrath.

Absolutely. I try and stay away from the "you weren't here in vanilla so you don't know what you're talking about" argument, but seriously, people who use one fight that requires two priests as proof that "bring the player" is a failure either never ran a 40 man or just have a really bad memory. Try finding eight warriors for BWL or five warlocks for MC, then we'll talk.Also, this might be splitting hairs a bit, but I disagree with "this equates to admitting that they do not intend for content to be perfect on first release" - specifically with the use of the word "intend". I think that Blizzard intends to release the best possible product that they reasonably can, but that they are also experienced enough to know that it's going to be impossible for them to predict everything that could happen once millions of people start playing new content.
