Thats not what Blizzard is trying to reference with this talent. Rather they are going to use the traditional weapon of the Night Elf Sentinels, a three bladed weapon akin to a boomerang.
It can be seen in this crest:

It is a simple mathematics problem to gain parity between a spec that has high "strike damage" benefiting from weapon damage and one that is dependent on raw stats (crit/haste/mastery/ap)
The issue arises in terms of balance and scaling.
If blizzard sets a target gear level; say . . . all heroic gear aside from heroic Ragnaros, we would see the following occur. Frost would be superior if you had a weapon that far surpasses the rest of your gear while Unholy would be better if you are unable to get a hold of a decent weapon.
This was true at the start of cataclysm but a lack of scaling with secondary stats has left Unholy lagging. A few bug fixes like repairing the gargoyle, ghoul scaling with crit, and a bit faster ramp-up/burst would go quite a long way for now . . . however the scaling would still be an issue.
A more concrete solution would be to calculate a a total item level/dps benefit of a weapon+armor and adjust mastery/unholy might up to compensate. This way, if a Frost DK is in full 359, 378, 391 gear an Unholy DK would be scaling at an identical rate equalizing the damage (encounter design notwithstanding).
This again is a problem due to the fact that it would have to be done after all quality of life and bug fixes rather than before.
