Breakfast Topic: Do you want 40-man raiding in Warlords?

Lead Encounter Designer Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas was tweeting today about the potential, initially brought up at BlizzCon, for flexible raids, which will be normal and heroic next tier, to extend to 40 players.

I wasn't concerned by this at all, but many have responded with unhappy messages. So I was wondering, do you want 40-man raids to be an option for new content? And if so, why?
