I think that most people will not like having to change their rolls constantly to be something else, I don't mind going cat to help meet a DPS requirement for an enrage timer, or being in cat and going bear to take up a tank spot cause a tank died and the Brez has been used. But I hate to heal and I don't care for Balance, IF I want to be ranged I'll bring my lock or hunter, I can see where raids will expect people to do things they don't want to just because they can. I would rather see 1 lvl 90 talent that allows for that and 2 that are better for mDPS/Tank or rDPS/Heals.

If you wanted to perform the same role consistently throughout the life of the character, why did you roll a Druid? There are single-purpose classes that do anything a Druid can do equally well. The special thing about being a Druid is your ability to shift between them. The developers are giving you the toolbox to be more effective in more situations and have a greater variety of play, and you're complaining because you might be forced into a role you don't enjoy? Hasn't that always been a concern for hybrid classes?You say you hate to heal, but if shifting out of form and hitting Tranq has the real potential to save your raid in a heavy damage phase, or shifting out of Bear and whipping out some DPS during a tank-not-required phase (transition phases on Ragnaros) can make everyone's life easier -- you're saying you'd prefer to just let the raid wipe because you'd rather not perform that role?Sounds like you should roll a rogue. They only do one thing, and never get asked to perform a different role in the group.

I am ok with turning into a Cat and opening a can of WA, but if I am expected to heal or do ranged, just because I can, though less effectively, then I am not ok with that. And I DO have a max lvl Rogue, I also have a Hunter, Dk, Lock, Warrior, and Druid, all of which are raid geared (at least t11). All I am saying is the expectations of a raid leader can drive people to do things that they don't want constantly, and I can see that as a problem. What I see Bliz doing is making Druids a pure utility class.
