How awesome would LAotL have been on Putricide progression? Exactly.
Second of all, Selfless Healer is a nice talent, but you are being misleading when you suggest it is a damage increase, at least in the way you phrase it. Using WoG will NEVER be a DPS increase, just like it should never be a threat increase for Prot (which it actually may be in certain AOE situations). You get the 12% to off set the fact that you are not hitting TV with that HP, primarily. It's a carrot on a stick to try and lure badadins in to a talent and behavior that will benefit someone besides themselves.
Finally, re: rest of the conversation here, just because you can't hit GC immediately on proc doesn't make it a bad talent. Unless your Judgement debuff is falling off or you are low on mana (hard to do unless you are hitting consecrate a lot without talenting for it), AS is always going to be higher priority than judgement. While not as good as it first looks upon inspection, I believe GC is a necessity for any serious tanking spec, single or multi target. The gap is even wider on single target fights. A glyphed shield hits several times harder than a judgement.
