"I'd love to see thinks like Mortal Strike and Titan's Grip removed from the talent trees and made into Mastery bonuses for spending points in their respective trees"I don't think they've given any indication that mastery will unlock any new talents or moves. From what I understood it's there to replace boring talents and to simplify itemization. Mortal Strike and Titan's Grip seems like the kind of things they'd most want to keep in the trees.

This. Mastery will probably improve hit chance and melee damage when you put things in the Fury tree, or melee damage and crit when you put things in the arms tree (with prot probably increasing stamina and block chance).There have been no indications that Mastery is going to improve anything other than the flat numbers of abilities you already have anyway. Hypothesizing otherwise can be fun, but is entirely without basis.

That's exactly what I thought. My impression was that they were scrapping essential-but-boring talents like "+5% crit" and "increases damage by 3%" in favour of ones that actually let you do new stuff. Both Titan's Grip and Mortal Strike, while essential for their respective specs, are fun talents that give you new abilities.
