I'm pretty sure the Glyph reduces Soulshatter's cooldown to eight seconds as well as turning into a single-target tauntPersonally my thinking is that Blizzard have implemented this as a glyph (one that clearly isn't implemented properly, as instead of "replacing" the damage bonus from mastery it actually just adds onto it, hence the ridiculously inflated damage) in order to avoid having to implement a fourth spec (which sounds much more complicated) and if Warlock Tanking takes off then it will be made into a spec, but that's just a theory.

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/4254517075?page=1#1 this is an excellent compilation of all warlock tanking info (and confirms that Soulshatter is changed into a real taunt, with the standard cooldown all tanks have)

The link Imnick posted is a great read if you want to understand what's currently going on for beta warlock tanking.

Don't blame Ghostcrawler, he's only the messenger

No GC isn't the messenger, he is the lead system designer.

Yes, but he never promised that warlocks would be able to tank.The only people who promised that were members of the community, who were wrong.
