I think that Rossi puts his finger on the root of the problem, which is effectively balancing 2 sub-specs within a single spec. The closest they've ever come to that is with Gerald, and there the entire tree was built around two distinct functions. And even that Blizzard seems to be admitting a failure, since the two are being separated for MoP.I'd hate to see SMF gone, but for balance purposes it might simply work better to make TG fury's defining trait and have first DKs be the single weapon dual wielders. They have the same problem as SMF, but in reverse. Of course, making mre balanced BiS weapons would help; it's absurd that an agility weapon is a warrior's bis at this stage of the game.

Gerald is overpowered.

They did this just fine with Discipline Priests and to a different extent Feral Druids. I know, I know... they're giving Druids a 4th talent tree in MoP, but the current design still works. As for Disco Priests, we can choose to go with atonement (ftw) or forgo it all together (wtf), both work but I'd argue atonement is way more fun. Just like I'd argue TG is more fun. That's not to say SMF shouldn't be viable, and much closer in performance, but I'm not surprised it was over looked.
