I wouldn't mind pugging cata heroics so much if:(1) it wasn't such a godawful long wait in LFD, even as a healer, and then running the heroic didn't take two hours with multiple drops, people getting kicked, requeuing, etc. So that in a 3-hour primetime evening block after work & supper, maybe you can get one heroic done if you are lucky.(2) if there was a "daily" heroic that gave extra rep, like Wrath had for a while(3) if the "gimmicks" in the boss fights weren't so unforgivable and caused insta-wipes. There should be a way to recover if someone misses an interrupt. Achieving perfection with a random group of strangers isn't terribly likely.

There is a daily heroic: It's whatever one you do first that day. (Subsequent heroics don't give Valor points, only additional justice points.) The Dungeon Finder replaced that functionality, and I don't see any reason why this is a problem. Why do you think this doesn't work?

crschmidt, if I had to guess at his thinking: under the old "daily heroic" quest system, if the daily heroic was an "unpopular" one (like, say, Oculus), people had to just either suck it up or not do it. Now, if the first heroic that gets served up to you is an unpopular one (not sure what they are at the moment, Stonecore, Grim Batol..?), you can just ditch it and roll again. There's nothing to provide an incentive for the group to stick together and work their way through the daily.
