Train of Thought looks like an extremely weak talent to me. Even if you are using your smite to heal as Disc, the cooldown on Penance is not long enough to invest 2 points into a talent that reduces it by 0.5 seconds - especially if Blizzard isn't lying about not having to cast every time the GDC is up in Cata.The way I see it, if you were trying to cast Penance as soon as it was available, you would get two casts of smite in if that. So for two talent points you get 0.5 to 1 second off the cooldown on Penance. No thank you.And how often are Disc priests casting Greater Heal?I do appreciate having talents that I don't feel I need to take though.

I was replying to your comment then realized I should include the reply in the article itself. So go check out the addendum to Train of Thought. Some follow ups to the addedum:*You and Heal getting divorced isn't so easy. First, you live in a state that requires proof of fault. Second, you do love Heal (just not as much as Flash Heal) and you know it's always going to be able to take care of you and love you. You and Flash Heal were young lovers together in Wrath before it had to go to war (Blizzard devs). You couldn't move on; had some casual thing going on with Renew for a while that you knew was never going anywhere. Penance, your best friend, was worried about you. Finally Heal walked into your life and you were able to move past Flash Heal enough to start a life with Heal. Then one day Flash Heal returns, but he lost a leg in the war. It's the same love, the same guy, but regardless of how it makes you feel, you know you're going to do so much more to make it work to make it work, if it will at all.*Those little useless bandages that only have a purpose every now and then? Holy Nova.Anyway, you don't really see health bars go up in an instant anymore - you just control how fast they go down and get momentary feelings of satisfaction when you do get to see one person at full. There really is a lot of triage going around, as Blizz promised, and the healers who are still healing at the end of the first tier in Cata will be better healers than they were when they started. I'd argue those healers will think everything in Wrath was a joke.
