I believe the references GC has been making towards the feral rotation is not entirely him implying they want other dps classes to have a 'complex' rotation such as feral, but use similar core mechanics of feral DPS. The mechanic of basically using certain abilities to chain or strengthen other abilities.With feral, we don't exactly slam which ever key is of higher priority and off CD / procced (much like how a few class play currently, who have been stated to be getting some attention) as we have quite a bit of debuff and buff management. To use our highest damage nuking ability, we are required to have Savage Roar, Mangle, and a bleed effect on the target.The closest you could relate to this mechanic currently with a warrior is with stacking sunders, and I assume the revamped Heroic Strike in Cata will also put more emphasis on this kind of gameplay.TL;DR: Blizz wants to steer away from whack-a-mole type playstyles.Could be wrong though ;)
