Tank cooldowns for druids inc?

At least it’s been acknowledged I guess:

“We agree with the sentiment among some players that Restoration druids and Restoration shaman are lacking in the healing cooldown department. The shaman buff and Power Word: Shield adjustment above should bring all healers reasonably close in terms of throughput. The decision on who to bring then might end up being dictated by the strong cooldowns offered by paladins or priests. This isn’t the kind of thing we can address via a hotfix, but it is something we are looking at for the next major content patch.”

Still interested to see what this looks like. Suggetions around the traps have ranged from barkskin as a targetable buff through to Swiftmend giving a Pain-suppression-like mitigation effect, but it would be nice if it was something more creative (but still useful).
