They're good in a way. Gives you a bigger chance to prove how good you are, if you're still doing awesome dps whilst performing these duties then that's testament to you knowing your shit. Nothing better than ranking whilst on "bitch duty". If anyone says "haha I beat you" when you're doing one of these then they're just plain stupid.
What I love is that I can do all this as a hunter and still (with good play) to good DPS, that's what I think is the most fun thing to do in a raid. Try and do as much dps as possible but still do the mechanics as well as possible.
Main reason hunters get put on a lot of these things. I mean why use a melee who loses 100% of his damage vs a hunter who can do everything still, given the range. I also like doing the niche things.
Well what grinds my gears is the fact I do turrets, bombs, oozes, MD adds, Dance on a Belt, and focus Desecrated Weapons and the Elemental shaman who does none of those things brags about beating me on DPS. AND brags about his AoE lol.
First of all, be glad you're doing stuff that matters... Other than that: Of course there are ponies who can do mechanics just good as you can, but you can ask for assistance on weapons, adds and the like. In our group we have lock + hunter doing belts, mines, adds.

That's not true! Hunters bring any raid buff you're missing! And uhm, MD!
