But to answer another question, Yes I believe 20% crit + approx 300 haste is the way to go. If you have a Draenai in your group and a boomkin at all times...the take away some hit gems/enchants and replace with SP/haste or crit and go with a 10% hit rating.
Isn't the Moonkin's IFF the same debuff slot as your hit with Misery?

you're not funny. crit scales exponentially so you'll never reach 100%
"Exponential growth (including exponential decay) occurs when the growth rate of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value. In the case of a discrete domain of definition with equal intervals it is also called geometric growth or geometric decay (the function values form a geometric progression)."

I think you mean that crit rating scales with diminishing returns, meaning that the higher your crit rating, the less benefit you gain from added crit rating.

As far as I know, 1 haste rating and 1 crit rating is valued the same according to shadowpriest.com. Can anyone confirm this? I feel like crit should scale better, affecting all of our spells.

1 crit = ~1.07 haste, according to the latest simulationcraft output.
It was hovering around 1 crit = ~1.25 haste recently, and as far as I know, no major changes were made that would have effected scaling values. So I guess we could settle for the mean and say 1 crit = ~1.16 haste.

From where do you get those numbers?

there can be a negative sign in an exponential you know, omg the function flips around! wow, the statement is valid now! no one cares about your nitpicking

I wouldn't expect the inhabitants of the internet to be aquadent in mathematics.

Are you talking about crit and haste as numbers that add up to percentage of crit and haste or that 1% crit is the same as 1% haste, dps wise?

I had a look at Loatheb today. Seems getting crit above 75% is very hard. I got 74.5% and popped a Wild Magic potion, which only gave 1% extra.
