@hawkinsI think you've hit the nail on the head here. The way this currently reads (much speculation here) the less often you cast the more damage you do because you're not depleting your mana pool. Another thing we may not be factoring in here is that Blizzard is doing away with MP5 in Cataclysm so we may have to be more proactive in regenerating mana for that "extra oomph".For those of us hit-capped (read: not benefitting from mana regen for missing hits) and high SP it looks like Mana Adept may mean kissing high DPS goodbye in favor of overall Damage Done. Higher DPS means more haste so we can cast more often, but it means running OOM faster. Add taking time out for Evocation + Mana Sapphire and DPS goes lower.Looks like a vicious cycle here but again it's still too early to tell.
