"Does this mean that the players have not figured out the optimal rotations for these specs?"Yes.Specifically, buried in the Blizzcon coverage, the devs mentioned that while players sometimes surprised them with their ability to get DPS out of specs, we also missed some better rotations from time, and that there were one or more specs that they had discovered better rotations.Now we know that they specifically meant that there are better rotations than the community-at-large has found for (at least) Unholy, Survival, and Subtlety. It very specifically is NOT a matter of players tightening up the rotation they're using (though that's unlikely to hurt your DPS); it's that we're doing it wrong (or at least sub-optimally.)We don't know how much the better rotation does, and won't until we figure out what it is. They balance using the best rotations they can, which means those specs will certainly under perform until we either find the rotation the devs use to balance or find a better one.
