There is indeed a gap in the data available with hunters, and likely with other 'underperforming' class/spec combinations. To use BM as an example, there simply aren't enough people playing BM at current endgame content-level to collect real data on it. As an antecdote, I'm praised for my ability to make BM work about twice as often as I'm criticized for using a 'fail' spec, at the same time, I see a lot of BM players with gear that indicates 'beginner' or 'alt' dps while their pets are on passive or perhaps take talents less optimized for damage in PvE situations or less optimized for survival in PvP situations, etc etc. MM is simply better-tuned to scale with the gear available, whereas BM and SV have their old Wrath reputations hanging from their necks in addition to current numbers. TLDR: underperforming specs are also underrepresented in current content, so keep that in mind before declairing a spec 'noncompetative'.
