the vast majority, for me anyway, of binds are for targeting, it may be the same ability bound to a key multiple times, but each modified bind targets a different specific thing, a specific party member, a specific player, my target's target, my focus target. these can quickly add up to some pretty impressive numbers.
i might just be holding on to some out moded style of play, but i find they help me compensate for my aging reflexes.
related to the topic, best bet is ranged, aff lock is NOT a good choice as i they have a fairly high skill floor. but destro can be very simple, mage is very easy at low levels, but gets progressively harder.
avoid melee in general. particularly warrior and rogues who have a lot of ummm, stuff. ret paladin is probably most forgiving melee in very low level play because their toolbox is smaller, but they can become fairly complicated and finicky the more you play it.
" I need a sec, my wrists hurt from spamming slam so hard. Playing cleave vs cleave is tough stuff guys"
I normally play melee classes none of which are clicker friendly.
Healing classes and mages in my opinion are very click friendly but the keyboard is still very helpful for movement, especially in pvp or movement oriented raid encounters.
Their are of course exceptions to every rule, I knew a warrior in wrath that was a clicker and it didnt seem to have any negative impact on his dps/survival capabilities, at least in a raid setting.

*If you want to criticize my english, Atleast post something usefull on the topic to*
I stopped keybinding when I fat fingered blink and ice block for the last damn time!
I only PvE, though.
The solution is dont click. If you plan on doing any fights or pvp that have you do more then sit there and cast (practically every fight, and unless the other player is afk...pvp as well)
Key bind, and your gameplay experience will greatly improve. And you'll have fun because you won't get raped by game mechanics and other players.
You move slower, react slower, and thus die quicker then if you bind.
Off the top of my head these are some of the keys I use as a holy paladin: 123456 w, a, s, d, q, e, r, t, g, f, x, c, v, ~, s1, s2, s3, s4, f1, f2, f3, f4, sf1, sf5, sf6, alt1, alt2, alt3, alt v, alt F. (I also have 14 more bound to my Sandio Tech 3D02 gaming mouse)
When you decide to take a step up and bind keys, you will want to practice. Random BGs. Do those with your keybinds to help you hone your player skills as well as help you memorize where those binds are so you don't even have to look at your keyboard. I can name every ability or macro on every one of those keybinds that I use because of things like that. It will only get better, whereas with clicking it really won't get better.
Gotta learn to bind dude, sorry. None are the most clicker friendly. You'll hate life if you pvp as a clicker. Just put in the time (which isn't very much) to bind. Start with the most important stuff and put it near your fingers. Interrupts, pvp trinket, etc. Work your way up. It'll become more and more comfortable to you until it just becomes natural and you stop thinking about where stuff is.
A alot of people saying frost mage. How would that be clickerfriendly? How would you be able to shatter as a clicker?
edit - decided not to fuel this.. since its sorta like asking 'what soup is best to eat with a fork?'.

This is a hotkey based game, so you should use your main abilities (at least) on basic keys like 0-5,E,Q. I dont see how is that could be hard or problematic for anyone.
Anyway, you should pick something with an easy "rotation", like frost DKs. Only in PvE ofc, as a clicker forget about PvP.
i think all you "leet" dudes with your 100 binds would be surprisingly shocked and mortified, if you actually knew how many times youve had your shit pushed in on the charts, or in pvp by clickers and semi clickers
So to go through your list. Living Action Potions are not relevant at level 90 because they don't work. Battle Standards, Frag Bombs and Nitro Boosts are all relevant to pvp combat at level 90, because I never specified Arenas (for a reason) - they are all relevant in battlegrounds and world pvp - that's fine. Your pet binds are non-combat, non-functional potion binds are not relevant, targetting binds are both combat and relevant.
There is no clicker that will beat an equally geared and skilled keybinder in anything whatsoever. (Unless the person who keybinds is afk)
Has nothing to do with being "leet" or other insecurities. It has to do with some basic logic. Keybinds = faster, Keybinds = more efficient, Keybinds = easier mobility, and Keybinds = more time dpsing less time clicking.
Keybinding isnt only about being fast
It's also about being looking at the game instead of looking at your keys, aka being aware of your surrounding, a pretty good talent toi have in PvP
