Main Question: Does the LFR tool have the same lockout as the normal/heroic? Or is it a seperate lockout akin to early WOTLK with normal/heroic having seperate lockouts?

Currently it's separate. There is much PTR to be had yet, so it could play out differently.

It was my understanding that LFR did not have a lockout at all.

Is it on the ptr already?

@jfoflaCurrently, I think so. It's hard to imagine infinite raids sticking, but then again, that is kinda the point of "training" raids. To teach and gear you up.@MattNo, it's not on the PTR. Hence the point. If it's not even up yet, there's a long way to go.

@skarnYou are assuming that Blizzard will put 4.3 up on the PTR. I have a sneaking suspicion that Blizz is pulling a fast one on the data miners by releasing all the info on the dungeons/raids/features now and just doing internal testing on the dungeons/raids to give us back that one thing we've been missing since Burning Crusade: the unknown. Since at least Wrath (if not before) all the raids have been testable before release, meaning that once the raids hit live they A) were already beaten and B) had strat vids/guides, killing the mystery for just about everyone. I think the statement that "we'll nerf it after it's beaten the first time so everyone else can experience it" kind of sums up my hypothesis.
