Of course, anything datamined off the PTR has to be taken as only slightly more reliable than a pencil sketch on the back of an envelope fished out of Ghostcrawler’s waste basket, but the idea of triple spec is still intriguing.  Of course, it would make a much bigger difference to some classes than to others.  Druids, paladins, and monks, for instance, have the choice of being tanks, dps, or healers.  Rogues and hunters, on the other hand, are really only choosing between different methods of sticking pointy things into their enemies.
