We actually decided the same thing about the primordial saronites, the first 25 will go to the initial Shadowmourne target. As the recipient (and guild leader) it was actually my suggestion that we go for crafted items first, but my second in command suggested with the way recipes are handled in ICC it would be better just to get the saronites out of the way to prevent any artificially slowed progression on the quest as content is released. Rest of leadership/loot council seemed to be in agreement so that's what we're going with.
I'm a DK for reference. Anybody claiming it's better for one class or another is delusional and most certainly should not receive it. It's the best for anybody who can use it by a mile.
