If I understood his point correctly, I believe he is saying that there needs to be catch-up mechanisms in place for anyone who takes a break and then needs to come back and try to be raid-ready again. He is saying that LFR is an important step in that process now and if anyone who didn't take time off will never participate, then the mechanism fails.

I do agree that alt maintenance is much harder now, but I'm not sure the value in making people do content they have already done extensively and might be burned out on so I'm not sure I 100% agree. As long as new heroics come out for each content patch, we should be able to play catch-up the same way we always did before LFR.
