I feel that HFB may now be a respectable, less OP talent. I'm not sure if a 12% dps nerf to a class that brings no buffs, very little utility and has no hybrid spec options, is a very fair trade for trying to bring us "in line" with other dps classes who mostly DO bring important buffs/debuffs, raid utility and raid role options via spec changes.
If dps was the only reason to bring a Rogue to a raid, which it pretty much is, you can just take another class if Rogues are jgoing to fall into 3rd or 4th dps places on the charts. Despite what many people are saying, DKs, Mages, Hunters and even Enhance Shammies are already right up a Rogues ass in dps if not right on top of us. As more gearing is done, I doubt this will change much.
