James' Forked Lightning build looks exactly like what I've been calling Blizz/Hydra (minor rune differences, and he's got Diamond Skin instead of Magic Weapon, but those are pretty much aesthetic choices). I'll add it as a guide under Blizz/Hydra, since that's currently guideless.
Did you want me to add you in the credits section as "a noob?"
Other Wizards don't fall comfortably into any of the categories above. They usually suck, which is why they're sitting here in this lamesauce "other" category at the end of the section. You should play them if you like to feel edgy and different, if being put into a category makes you feel claustrophobic, or if you're trying to convince Blizzard to stop nerfing CM (protip: it's not going to work).
I wish you could make them see that they suck :P
Guybrush is from the EU forums, his thread was a consolidation and continuation of work done in getting the proc ratios, updated soon after 1.05 was released.
On his thread, Apo and Shandlar had quite a bit of discussion and testing on the WW tick rates, results of which were posted in the WW tick rate thread that was created subsequently.

Aim is to melt elites in 3 seconds.
Needs 3 or more APS.
Use spectral blades healing blades to kill everything (needed for reflect damage mobs).
Using anything else e.g. hydra, blizzard, etc is not viable as 3.0 attacks per second spectral blades does more damage.
You can use pretty much any armour as long as you don't die.

Melee wiz no freeze: Non-viable.
I 1000% disagree take a look at my build and see if you disagree I clear up to MP 5 as fast as any other CM or Archon and fall into the "other category" .
I do not enjoy after mp 5 but can survive in MP 10 but 65 m HP elites are just boring.
That said after all the nerfs wizards need some love
