To be fair, there are also a couple buffs in the patch notes. For example, the last boss of Vortex Pinnacle summoning adds now. I don't think it's so much a matter of them trying to nerf heroics across the board at this point, but rather an attempt at achieving parity between the various heroics and heroic bosses. It takes time, and a lot of data and feedback, to decide when or if to fine-tune the difficulty of various bosses and mechanics. Does Blizz tend to nerf stuff over time? Absolutely. (And, as you pointed out, GC said as much in his blog post.) But I don't think we should assume that the changed on the PTR are attempts at making heroics easy. They will still be plenty challenging to groups of appropriate gear level. More and more people are starting to become overgeared for heroics, but it won't belong before most of those people stop chain-running heroics and move on to raiding. I don't think we're in danger of heroics reaching faceroll status any time soon.
