I don't see any 'easy' solution to the healing plate issue (speaking as a holy paladin myself). The only thing you could maybe do is give paladins some skill (or talents?) that would actually turn DPS-plate into healing gear (call it 'Sanctification', make it a paladin-only type of Reforging?), or possibly a way to transform other healing gear into plate. Those kinds of things do make gear choice less transparent though, which seems counter to the intent of the Cataclysm changes.On the other hand, are there now more single-spec types of gear? Spirit cloth is apparently now just for priest healers (disregarding for a moment the 'higher armor classes', players themselves can take care of that issue). I'm not entirely sure homogenization is still necessarily the focus in Cataclysm. It was in WotLK, and is probably still desirable to an extent, but they seem to be focusing on easier to understand stats and gear choices for Cataclysm, and what's easier than gear that only fits one spec?
