Are they not? I simply couldn't live without some of my glyphs, even if they don't increase my damage. Hell, I'm still trying to find someone to make me Black Ice.

Simple answer: no, i prefer the fun ones over actual use, we played without them for quite awhile, so i'm good with them not being reliant upon.
I like the new glyphs, personally. Minors are fun and cosmetic, and majors are actually options rather than requirements. There are a couple of exceptions, of course, but overall "using X glyph instead of Y glyph" isn't something to laugh at a person about unless they're just REALLY messing it up and using, say, shadow majors for holy or something to that extent.
Bacon is the thing pigs give you when you're good.
I actually have difficult decisions to make now when it comes to glyphs and talents. I never used to, and i rarely changed them. So no, i am the complete opposite of the OP.
I regularly swap a glyph or two for the one or the other boss... That's more than I did in all of Cata. And when I start doing some PvP again, I'll be swapping glyphs back and forth even more frequently.
I had the absolute best glyphs for my spec back in Cata, don't ask me which ones they were tough because I don't remember, I just picked the ones the intrawebs told me to.
Now I actually have some personal choices there. They don't affect my gameplay much, but at least when they do I know it's because of something I chose rather than some of the many mysterious things I copy pasted from Elitist Jerks.
i like the theory behind the current glyph system, but for some classes i've found that PVE wise sometimes there isnt really anything you need . . . they seem a bit wishy washy etc
I would agree with new people that the new glyph system is infinitely better except... I play a disc. Now, for raiding I have some very interesting choices I can make depending on the fight, which I find very enjoyable. The problem is, like to PvP and while disc has many glyphs I would like to try, we have three mandatory major glyphs you just can't PvP without. It was really a huge disappointement not to get any variety there.
