Both the Dragonstalker Tunic (http://www.wowhead.com/item=56564) and the Corded Viper Belt (http://www.wowhead.com/item=56539) from leather working will receive gem slots in 4.0.6 and in my opinion will be the superior items in those slots for the item level. I'll be aiming for the 4 piece bonus but with the LW chest piece. There is also an epic hunter ring available from exalted Earthen Ring reputation. The Signet of the Elder Council (http://www.wowhead.com/item=62362) if you don't want to wait for the right random ring to drop.

The stats on the Signet of the Elder Council are haste/mastery, so if we can get lucky enough to grab the right combo on the Mistral Circle, we would prefer that as BiS. As a way of tiding us over, though, we do indeed want that Signet. I'm looking to reforge the haste to crit when I do get it, eventually.

Agreed, and I get that it's a BiS list, and the secondary stats are not optimal. I guess I was just offering up ring options, since as Frost was saying, it's pretty limited. And the fact that the ring is random stats from a random drop, it might take longer to obtain, and this ring is fairly easy to get through reputation.Someone else said they were adding a Valor Point ring as well, so that will also help.

Any idea if they'll add sockets retroactively?

If you've made the gear already then yes, you'll see new gem sockets on them after the patch hits.

Except, they didn't get sockets.

You're right, they didn't. We were told they were, and when they patch went live, myself and many other leather workers/mail wearers were left scratching our heads. Other epic crafted pieces did indeed get added gem slots, but ours did not. Aside from Blizzard stating this is a known issue, I haven't yet figured out if it was intended, or an oversight. Hoping we get our gem slots in a hotfix or future patch.Case in point as to why Frostheim left these pieces off the best in slot list as we never know what will happen between the PTR, the patch notes and the live realm.
