How could you say that haste is fairly useless as a healer? It's one of their best stats.. ie. More HoT's. Quicker casts..
Reading comprehension would go a long way...if you take a look, I said verbatim: "Haste does nothing for healers except speed up casts, which most of the time you don't really need."
Do you need this haste buff on Morchok? No
Do you need this haste buff on Zon'ozz? It might be beneficial during the Black Phase...but what happens if your DPS kill all of the adds and you get back into your groups and THEN your proc happens? Waste
Do you need this haste buff on Yor'sahj? Again, only if your other healer is bad or during the Green-Yellow-Red-Black fun fest...but what happens if it proc'd while the Oozes were walking towards Yor'sahj? It won't be up when you really want it.
Do you need this haste buff on Hagara? Water phase? Lightning phase? How do you control it?
Do you need this haste buff on Ultraxion? It would be applicable due to there being constant, increasing damage.
Do you need this haste buff on Warmaster? It would have its uses, but honestly, if you're healing a lot on Warmaster, tell your raiders to quit standing in the big glowing red beam of damage.
Spine? Yes, I can see this trinket being useful all the time on Spine. Absolutely no argument there.
Madness? You have a 20% haste buff for 4/5 of the fight, so any proc from your trinket will suffer immensely from diminishing returns. If it were to proc at a great time on Kalecgos' platform, you might benefit. But more so than Morideth's experience with his/her Druid partner? Hardly.
To sum it up, yes, I understand Haste is good for healers. I'm not arguing that at all. What I'm arguing is the proc from the trinket being garbage. If anyone can debate that without telling me I don't know what I'm talking about because healers need more haste, HoTs, and lower cast times, let me know. All I'm saying is this haste proc proc'ing when you don't need it to will only increase your overhealing and decrease your overall effectiveness at healing.
