That's the problem right there. In Cataclysm, Blizzard's philosophy will be "Bring the talent tree, not the talent(s) or spell(s). What that means is that after they redesign the talents and trees for Cata, their aim is for players to make simpler choices about talents to the point that all they'll need to do is pick a tree and go with it. There will also be less hand wringing about picking secondary talents in other trees. You will simply pick one tree and go deep into it.Having sub or hybrid specs has never been something encouraged by Blizzard. From a development perspective, they're difficult to support and balance for. Invariably, when a viable hybrid spec is discovered, it quickly becomes the FOTM and everyone suddenly switches to it. Builds like Frostfire and SL/SL (and shockadin to a much lesser extent) are like the chemistry experiments that resulted in something unique and exciting instead of exploding in our faces.
