I agree that Pallies have problems with PWS because they gain mana from damage. To really answer the question though, NO, PWS does not negatively effect rage generation as it did in the past. Not since 3.0.2 i think it was when they fixed that for rage. Also casting PWS at the beginning of the fight shouldn't effect anything, it won't generate threat unless maybe if you have the PWS glyph, but that is so minor that it shouldn't matter.

In general, I do not bubble the tank (regardless of class) at the start of the pull, if for no other reason than I don't want to hear qq from them about whatever real/imaginary/5 patches ago issue they used to have with being bubbled while building threat. During boss fights, (and especially with Mr Patchwork) I'll sprinkle bubbles on the tank only if things look like they taking a bigger beating than I can keep up with, or if I know some heinous damage is incoming.

DK tanks = always bubble. They have nothing to get in the way.Other tanks = Talk to the tank before hand. I always tell my tanks to let me know if I need to lay off the bubbles a bit, but I still never bubble before a pull.It sort of depends on where you are at too. In raids you can pretty much bubble and not worry, the bosses eat through those things like nothing.

"In general, I do not bubble the tank (regardless of class) at the start of the pull"There is absolutely zero drawback to shielding a DK tank. You're doing them a HUGE disservice.
