There are a few subjective "inaccuracies" I would like to point out. Energy Siphon, while not a great trinket, is ok for a resto shaman and disc priest. It is also much better than Binding Light as Binding light will only build up spellpower buff stacks meaning you will start off with 0 spellpower upon activation and the max theoretical spellpower for only seconds after you have cast 8 spells (as the overall effect only lasts 20 seconds). Energy Siphon will give its full spellpower buff right away and also last 20 seconds. For a shaman, that's great for refreshing earthshield and buffing up chain heal at key times.Binding light is actually really only a disc priest trinket as you can get a lot of stacks from one pennance and then bubble every second using the rest of your time with this trinket activated (a spell which scales very well with spellpower).Spark of hope is overpowered to the point of ridiculousness. It is an insane amount of regen such that it is BIS easily for priests and also druids in terms of regen. The amount of regen scales with the amount of haste you have and with the length of a fight (as it will proc with every spell and not per unit of time). Even for paladins and shamans it can be a very good trinket and probably is competitive even with Pandora's Plea and Talisman of Resurgence for them in terms of mana regen.The only reason you would not use it is if you have no mana problems (very possible since Blizzard has nerfed having to worry about mana in WotLK) or if a fight has high burst healing requirements.As for everything else I would be inclined to agree. Start farming peeps!

I'd also like to point out that depending on your raid composition, and the incoming changes to all healers and their impending desire to use spirit as regen, it couldn't possibly hurt to tuck one away if no one actually needs it.The shaman and pallies are going ot be seeing spirit on their gear, and grabbing an OP trinket for starting the next expansions first tier of raiding can't hurt.
