"We made it a banner for a couple of reasons.We thought the demoralizing and mocking mechanics were more useful if the warrior could place them somewhere else. For example, imagine a warrior (and not just a tank) using the Mocking Banner to direct incoming adds over to where the tank is currently standing. Now Skull Banner doesn't strictly have to be a banner, since the warrior will probably want to benefit from it most of the time, but we left it as a banner for one pretty cool reason: since the banner is an ally, you can Intervene to it (!). That opens up some cool gameplay options."I usually keep an open mind, but I'm totally confused about this. I remember a few months ago reading about how they wanted to get rid of so many shaman totems that were buffs. Now warriors are getting their group buffs turned into glorified shaman totems??

The last part of your quote seems to be your answer. They are turning the regular buffs into banners because you can intervene to the banner, and they like that concept. The other banners are short duration buffs, like what they wanted totems to start being.

The banners provide additional, short term buffs and debuffs (eg. the Demoralising Banner is not replacing Demoralising Shout), so that's consistent with what they're doing to Shaman totems.(Yeah yeah, I know Thunderclap is replacing Demoralising Shout - but Demoralising Banner will stack with Thunderclap)
