From what I've been reading 3.1 will change Enlightened Judgments to only affect Light and Wisdom. This effectively kills Judgment of Justice for raiding Holy pally's (since they can't cast it from 40 yards out anymore).The problem is that judging the same judgment overrides any additional effect a previous judgment is giving.Prot paladins have Judgments of the Jut which reduces the swing time of the mob by 20% (a single target effect like Thunderclap). Ret paladins have Heart of the Crusader (addition 3% chance to crit on the target).So if Ret judges light and Prot judges wisdom and each has an effect Holy can't judge either of those without overwriting their judgment and their affect.I believe this change was made specifically due to the strength of pally's in PvP but because of the mechanics of overwriting judgments it really tends to hinder a raid mechanic.Now if they were able to change /cast macros to allow you to cast spell on your target's target without changing your current target I could see it being an inconvenience but definitely able to be worked around.If all else fails you just won't be maximizing your raids potential (unless Blizzard changes a scaling factor).

Most holy paladins have Heart of the Crusader too, so that's not a huge deal.

But then you don't want to overwrite the Ret's JoL because it has almost twice the healing power of a Holy's.
