Great post. I feel that a lot of raid leaders think once they assign healers (Bob watch the main tank, George watch the off tank, Charles heal the raid), that's that. I would really hope that healers don't use that sort of tunnel vision. Healing really is about triage, factoring in impending damage, positioning, current health, target priority and everything you mentioned.I think the main problem right now is that "brute force" approach of spamming AoE heals until everyone is topped off, mana efficiency and overhealing be damned, is the most popular, and probably the most effective strategy, especially in 25s. As a shaman, I often feel I have only one viable spell (guess which) in 25s, while in 10s I can actually single target now and then.Hopefully the higher health : damage ratio in Cataclysm, and perhaps mana actually mattering, will make things more interesting.
