Regarding inflation, why not have more mining and herbing nodes and more returns on disenchanting, milling, and prospecting? I see the main point of the inflation section in the sentence that reads, "The number of dailies it takes to gem and enchant an average raider's gear has gone up, not down." The cost of gemming, enchanting, etc is simply ridiculous these days. Metagems for 1000g, pure +INT gems for 400g, enchanting mats ranging from 50-250g, and ore/herbs at 250g/stack? Unreal...

We need an occupy Stormwind/Orgrimmar to demand an end to these exorbitant prices!

Part of the problem there, in my opinion, is that in Cata blizzard went the wrong way. All of the sudden it makes a million leather to make a crafted piece, gems of any type are a pain in the butt to come by - the JC daily takes 3 gems now when it used to take 2, and you get less gems when you prospect than you used to with saronite... I really don't know what they were thinking but with a lot of crafting it feels like they just made it harder - well what do you expect is going to happen when you do that? *headslap*

Actually, the prospecting yields are slightly higher on elementium and obsidium than they were with saronite. We also have fewer useless greens, and needing 2 gems for most of the jewelry is balanced out by the much higher disenchanting results. Being able to transmute green gems tips the numbers even more, and the AH fees are lower on Cata gems, too. (And let's not get started on 9g vendor price gems...)
