On ToGC Gormok-25 and possibly even Anub'arak, there is no reason why one hunter in the raid (or a moonkin with an unglyphed Insect Swarm) should not be applying and reapplying Scorpid Sting. It's a flat 3% avoidance boost for the tank versus bosses who hit like freight trains. Versus bosses who don't hit for as much, it's less necessary (though probably well-advised if a boss is progression content or the tank is undergeared). Is it a DPS loss for the hunter or moonkin in question? Absolutely. But Gormok killing your tank in the space of 3 seconds and rampaging through the raid is a less desirable outcome. While Scorpid Sting/IS alone won't keep your tank alive, the cumulative effect of healers' damage prevention abilities, tank and healer CD's, an improved AP reduction, and SS/IS go a long way toward blunting Gormok's damage output.
