Yeah, but I've always taken pride in that part as Feral.

I *completely* disagree. It may be insignificant from an overall healing standpoint, but you aren't needed to sustain high levels of HPS - you need it during rough times to save your skin. Do you think the healers hate seeing me at 60% during a massive AoE damage phase while everyone else is critical at 20%? Have you ever seen someone just bleed out when a small heal would have saved them? Heroic stone guard, we need tiles, healers are busy with tanks and movement. I can go grab a crystal regardless of the petrification because of my heals. There are countless times on heroic Feng where I can use my heals during his AoE phases. Otherwise things happen like I get hit by a few chain lightnings in a row and die. Those are the only two fights I've done on heroic, but I would still assume my healing would be useful on other fights.
I agree it adds a little bit extra to the rotation but I like living more which is why I say it's clunky and counter intuitive.
You misunderstood. Had I said that having a free Healing Touch after every Swiftness proc or Nature's Swiftness use was bad, then by all means you would be right. These free heals are, in fact, extraordinarily useful after taking raid wide or almost fatal damage. In terms of actual Heals per Second, which is what HPS stands for, it is weak when you consider a 1 minute cooldown or the chance per combo point Swiftness proc. Don't misunderstand, I never said it was useless as you seem to have interpreted.
Back on topic, since Dream of Cenarius will (most likely) be the clear choice, I do hope that we see a small buff in the future. Whether it be in the form of higher damage from CP generators or by buffing Dream of Cenarius itself. I want to be rewarded for my extra hard work!
