IMO, the heart of the problem lies in the fact that everyone wants to run with the big boys (where that line is drawn is up to you) but most people simply can't. Whether the reason for that is a lack of time (the "I play an hour a week" crowd), skill or dedication, western society in recent generations is one that has been raised to believe that we're all special snowflakes and we all deserve to be rock stars and pretty princess's and be rich and famous and have the world handed to us on a platter because we're special and unique and beautiful and how dare anyone say otherwise. Unfortunately this presents a problem when suddenly someone finds themself incapable of doing something. Can't down a boss? Well, clearly it's because the fight is too hard. /whine on forums. Got wrecked in PvP? It's not cause I suck and I'm wearing dungeon blues. It's because Paladins/Death Knights/whatever class I lost to is overpowered! /whine on forums. Can't queue for the Raid Finder because my gear isn't good enough? Rubbish! My gear is good enough for standing around in Orgrimmar so it must be good enough for killing Death Wing. Therefore the problem must be that Blizzard is catering to the elitists that have no life. People just need to learn to accept that they have limitations and either work to overcome them or shut their traps. My guild never killed Heroic Rag (we stopped at 6/7-H) and while it was the thing I wanted most out of T12, I can readily admit that it won't happen until MoP when it's easily facerolled because we just aren't good enough. The first step to getting better is acknowledging that you need to get better, not putting on your "I'm a special and unique snowflake" t-shirt and throwing blame around.

There is a rather significant amount of "upper middle class" type guilds that would love to be 7/7. Blizzard is trying more and more to cater to its masses. You can either be grateful that blizzard makes things manageable for you, or you can whine like Desmond about how he could have 7/7 if he juuuuuuuuuuuuuuust had another week. Or maybe another week, or another.
