Unless I'm misunderstanding something, Prot Pally isn't the only mastery with a hard cap. Ele shaman, Arms warriors, Combat rogues, and MM hunters all have extra attack procs as their Masteries. I don't see how those could stack past 100% chance to proc the attack. I assume you meant Prot's was the only mastery with a hard cap that could be reached, but that's only because it 'stacks' with 2 other stats.

The difference is that these classes have theoretical caps for their mastery whereas Paladins have a cap that is actually reachable.Using the examples you provided:A Marksmanship Hunter would need approximately 7131 mastery rating to cap at level 85An Elemental Shaman would need approximately 7560 mastery rating to cap at level 85An Arms Warrior would require approximately 6741 mastery rating to cap at level 85A Combat Rogue would require approximately 7560 mastery rating to cap at level 85As an item level 393 Paladin tank it takes me only 2806 mastery rating to cap. While this number will vary a bit between different Paladins based on their Parry and Dodge percentages you can see that a Paladin can cap with little over a third of the mastery rating required by other classes.TL;DR: You're right, here's some napkin math.
