So Holy is now better at Atonement than Disc (taking Chastise into account)?

From my experience, finding a backup RL for a 10man is much easier than for a 25. First off it is of course very much dependant on the raidlevel of your guild. After that however, keeping track of 24 other people, executing/explaining strategy (yes some guilds have to go over strategy every week) is a tougher job compared to having to know what 9 other people have to do.
Agree on your points though. Give the new person a chance to perform his leading role. Better yet, provide any support you can give. Assist on dividing tasks (healing assignments, movement strategies, CD rotation) if you are someone that knows this stuff. A new RL has to grow into the role gradually. Preferably he/she takes on new micromanagement tasks each following raid. After a while, a lot of things will come natural and the multitasking will no longer feel stressful. Then one day, you wake up and realise you have two interchangeable RL's. Better yet, you can alternate whenever you want. Giving your RL a break now and then is a good way to prevent burnout (especially on progression)

Cost reduction makes me worry about regen or mana pool, or both. Very curious to see feedback from the testrealms on how this all works.

"It has already been announced that there will be upwards of 40 Grand Prix next year. This allows more opportunities to attend a GP for those that see it as a cash tournament"
This is only valid for US players.
Also, recalculating a PPC program based off the fact that there are more GP's is not really an insurmountable task. You make it sound as if the idea alone is folly. (I'm not a Pro, nor have I aspired to get on the PT train).
As for cutting 'Worlds' down to 16 players, that is a pretty big dagger into your playing community. The previous changes have been met with doubt and turned out ok. Assuming this one will share the same fate, I think you might just be in for a surprise.
