    It's not a "bad" comp. It's just not optimal and I find it annoying managing ranged and melee in the same group. You could easily clear dungeons with 3 warriors, mage and priest.

    That depends on the encounter. Some encounters melee just stack and DPS while ranged have to deal with more movement and decursing.

    While cleaving packs you're going to be using cleave, whirlwind...

    If you adjust your macros appropriately the DPS will be close enough to make little difference. Heroic strike accounts for around 30% of your overall DPS as a warrior. Missing a few might reduce that...

    You can't "tank" raid trash as a 5man in vanilla. The only way to farm trash (the trash that can be farmed) is by kiting it.

    The problem with this is that if you're in the middle of an action (casting shadowbolt, for example) when corruption resets to step 1 it won't cast.

    I think using castsequences is more reliable.
