Run for the hills!!!!
Theres something wrong in the current schedule.
5.2 hits(whenever hits im not gonna enter that discussion).You got 3000 VP.You cant expend that valor on nothing since you need Shado Assault rep so options(not exclusive):
A) You are a non-raider.First Segment is not opened yet.You cant spend valor...for all that is worth getting to the patch with 2000VP or 3000VP is the same thing since you cant spend it till next week(and the next week all the VP you gain is still wasted till you get shado rep).
B) You a are raider.All the valor from killing bosses is wasted till you get shado rep.
C) People start the reputation at neutral without even setting foot on ToT (LFR not opened) and you can buy the ring (rep needed neutral).
(Im not considering KirinTor-Sunreaver 496 valor gear).
Anyone got infor on this? How is the shadopan assault rep handled? Should we aim to 3k valor on cap or 2k is enough?
I really hope C).
ANd here we go, exactly proving the reason why Blizzard is reluctant to give out dates. The only thing they said is that they AIM for the last week of February, that is not the same as an actual release date, but something they AIM for.... a lot can happen that causes this date to shift.
And still they could even make the PVP statement tomorrow or so and then the announcement would be a little under two weeks from the patch or it will be first week of March. Whatever, it'll be out when it's out.
Just do what you can or feel you need to do to the best of your abilities and stop guessing is my advice. If the shit really hits the fan and they run into some major issues perhaps they have to postpone it a week or two anyway...

Yes you don't get more VP from the bosses etc. but all in all that's not really too bad. Because if you really have no use for any of the other gear, you're probably geared enough to go through normals fast enough to gear up with regular loot and bonus rolls.
I support this decision really, it's better than removing 3k of VP from people that still want to buy gear but can't because they haven't acquired the faction rep at that moment. Would be more sucky being 500 points away from revered and having 3k VP and then 'poof' 5.2 hits, you lose the VP and hit revered with no points to spend anymore.

Cool, thanks. Was wondering if I should aim for having 3k at the start of 5.2 or I should spend them on upgrades as I will need rep anyway.
You should reach Friendly quickly if you raid normal mode and LFR. Im aiming for 3k.

Phew. Got a bit more time to get some more gear, along with completing the first, and starting the second stage of the Legendary Chain!
They stated on blizzard web site with this info...."Of course we don’t tend to give out patch release dates ahead of time, because things can slip, but right now we’re targeting the last week of February."....that doesn't mean it will happen in February....its just a info piece to keep you running on your heels....its just a targeting info....not a set date....
