I really must point to the splitting of druids into 4 specs as the most compelling argument against Demo gaining true tanking viability in the form of a glyph. If the conclusion for druids is that they are ultimately to difficult to balance with one spec that fills two roles, what is it about warlocks that would make them any easier to balance that way? I wouldn't cry if Demonology's DPS wasn't comparable to the other 2 specs, if it meant that it became a tank spec. It would be better to just make Demo the tank tree, rather than have it be a glyph that gives the ability. As cool as it would be, I'll be surprised if anything comes of Demo tanking. If I had to bet, I would put my money on the glyph not making it to live. It is more likely that warlock tanking would be the result of dedicating one entire spec to the role. That said, perhaps the glyph is a trial balloon for real warlock tanking further down the road.

Another thought.Could this be the beginning of the end of "pure" DPS? Warlocks get tanking, Rogues and Mages get...? I'm having trouble seeing either as healers or tanks, but I'm not all that imaginative. Maybe there's some kind of long range plans there.

As pointed out above, the difference between feral bearcats and this glyph is that you can't swap the glyph out in combat, while druids can change form.
