Honestly, the 'new' concept with people having more hp (so your heals doing relatively less) and less 'omg heal now' moments just sounds to me like there will be lots of small hits on a lot of people at the same time. Right now part of being a good healer is knowing where the damage will be, fast reflexes, and, unfortunatly, raw output. Those skills won't be much of an issue if you have ample time to top people off. If that's indeed the game, healing will become less about the healing and more about managing your mana.
If in Cata triage healing will become more prevalent, that just implies that druids will be top-of-the-line healers once again. Many people taking small hits --> say hi to hots.
