I'm not sure where you got the idea of an engineering/jewelcrafting combo - maybe its good, but I've never seen anyone with such a combo, and there's very little about either profession that screams "combine us" to me. Care to enlighten?I think JC goes well with Enchanting, also with Alchemy. JC feeds crap rings that are cheap to make for the Enchanter to get mats from, while the Alchemist can transmute gems for the JC. However, JC and Alchy both benefit much more from a gathering profession, at least from a leveling perspective.If you aren't a cloth class, pair up your enchanting with any gathering profession. Its the best from a moneymaking perspective (also pretty good for clothies who don't want tailoring). At max level though, the markets for gathered goods can have major oversupply, so dropping the gathering profession for alchy or JC would be good, especially if you have Mining or Herbs on another toon.

Most serious PVPers, especially rogues and hunters, will have Engineering for obvious reasons. They will usually have JC since out of all the professions it provides one of the best stat boosters. So yes, JC and Eng is a very popular PVP profession combo. I see it all the time.

Well, I had the Engineering-Mining combo till i dinged 80, when i realised that mining doesnt bring in money anymore while Engineering simply sucks. I didnt want to give up engienering so I tried to swap mining for JC and 2500gold later I have Engi-JC combo... works awesome for me. As a tank I get many useful "enchants" from engienering like +32 stamina on a head slot and JC gives me the 3x54 (not sure how much exactly) stamina gems. Not sure how will this work out for me when I have to level both professions in Cataclysm, but so far works gr8 for me.P.S. Making money from JC is so easy and fast.

that said, i'm pretty sure that there was a minor typo, and that it wasn't a "blizzard intended for leveling reasons" pairing like every other pairing mentioned in the article.
