@AldenWe understand your point, it's just idiotic. As others have already pointed out, even under a 1 piece loot cap, the chances of you getting more than one piece on your average successful raid are actually pretty good, especially if the raid specifies that main spec includes proper armor class. Think about it for a second. Let's say you're in a 10 man. There are only 1 or 2 other people in the raid in your role, and main spec gets priority. Plus, those roles may include people in other armor classes. So, for example, if you're a ret paladin, there are probably only 2 other melee dps in the raid. Of those other 2 dps, they still won't be rolling against you for armor pieces if they aren't an arms/fury warrior, a DK, or another ret paladin. The rogues, cat druids, and enhancement shamans won't touch your stuff. Now, there's the matter of itemization. Even within the realm of melee plate dps, different classes prefer different stats. The retadin in the previous example doesn't care much for armpen, so he can let those pieces go by. And that's all not even counting the frost emblems and Ashen Verdict rep, which you get after every kill regardless of loot drops. So on your average successful 3 hour raid you can clear 6 bosses without too much trouble. That's 12 different pieces of loot, and you're only rolling against 1, perhaps 2 other people, and you still get the emblems and rep. Yet you stealth log after your first loot drop. Good thinking.
