I've seen someone link that they got the galleon mount after a kill, but he could have gotten the item link from the dungeon journal.
You are laying down the burden of proof on other players which is fair enough, but the burden of proof should not be on us but on an official reply from blizzard. They can simply state if its in the game or not. Why they have not done so if theres been so much activity on the subject I can't say. Anything else on that is pure speculation.
Your train of thought is that everyone just look at their own armory and hence only if they own themselves they would throw it here?
Well, I guess you missed the plethora of people saying the friend of their cousins got it. And yet no Armory Link to those cousin's friends.
I've actually seen the Galleon mount drop on day 1 of MoP. We killed Galleon about 15 hours into release, and shortly afterwards saw someone parading their mount. Wish I had taken a screenie as proof, but I guess you'll have to take my word for it :P
Just a quick update.
In the interest of fair play and doing some looking i've sent some tweets to some wow devs just hoping I get a reply

that Mushan is not the mount.
A friend of mine got the Alani mount, but couldnt use it because he didnt have cloud serpent to exalted (for the sloud serpent riding skill) and didnt have August Celestials to exalted (not sure why Alani requires this as well)
As the Sha mount also requires Cloud Serpent Riding, I would not be surprised if someone got it but couldnt use it.
My name is Cernunnos, I will love you like no other, I have died a thousand deaths, each time I died I thought of you.
This is the problem, obviously it seems very appealing to people to come to an internet forum to lie. I do not assume to see you back in the thread with some charname.
Everything else is deposited directly into player bags, something the Wowhead client can't track very accurately.
Just look at something else that uses the same system, like an LFR boss. Tsulong for LFR is recorded as dropping everything -2 times.

If it doesn't drop it's because they don't want it to drop. They would have noticed if nobody in any Sha/Galleon group has ever gotten the mount. Then they would have fixed it unless they had a reason not to.
