Jeez.... people just either don't know their WoW history because they are new to the game (in which case WELCOME) or they are so focused on whining about something they forget it.
Enter the ICC 5mans in Wrath. ToC loot (T9) was 232 on 10man. ICC 5man loot was 232.
In other words... it's been done before, it will continue to be done.
