A new look at ICC Gemming: Stam/Avoidance Gearing vs Stam Stacking
I'm posting on here because I see a lot of people posting about ICC, and itemizing, but I don't exactly see many people talk about Chill of the Throne the way I consider it, which is the same way I thought about Sunwell Radiance.
The way I see it, taking away 20% of our avoidance, makes avoidance 1.2x more valuable of a stat to get, to makeup for all of that incoming damage we're about to get. Because blizzard specifically posted that "Bosses will not hit harder, just more often" it seems to me that getting back that avoidance is much more important than just going LOL-STAM :D.
For example, on my armory: The World of Warcraft Armory I show what I mean by going Stam/Avoidance.
All blue sockets are pure stam, all red are Stam/Dodge (until parry gives me the same amount of avoidance as dodge, then I will swap gems back and forth) and all Green gems are Stam/Defense. These are all considered viable as long as I've found the Socket Bonus is at minimum +6 stam. For helms where the Socket Match is +12 stam, it's rather obvious that losing only 3 stam for 10 dodge rating is a simple choice.
So what I'm asking for in this thread are 2 things:
1) A critique on my current system of gemming and enchanting, and math behind why gemming either pure stam, or the half-half system I'm using is better.
2) A critique on my BIS list that I have created as far as the first 2 wings of ICC10+25. The gem choices and enchants in this set will reflect my half-half system of gemming. The link following takes other certain things into consideration:
2a) The Stam from Unidentifiable Organ will be up permanently.
2b) I am using 40 stam 40 Expertise food.
2c) I am a prot warrior who gains 6 expertise from specc, so current unbuffed expertise is 26.49
2d) I am a Draenei, so with the current +hit weapon, I have 7.68 hit.

(Note that the Facelifter can Replace my current tanking weapon, and I could swap to hit food, or use Agility food at any time if threat is not an issue, which it has yet to be in this instance)
Edit: Also, I was considering that once I acquire all of these Armor pieces, the 2% Armor 32 stam gem in the helm may end up being better than avoidance+block value.
Edit: This entire post also considers that all raid debuffs on the boss will be put up by other classes. IE: 20% slow from feral druid / DK, and AP debuff by Ret Paladins. So the only thing I have to do is keep up sunders and do threat. (Hence why I'm not specced into Imp Tclap)
