Just a random thought...
While farming the other day, I was musing over the trail of fire I was leaving behind as I Vaulted, and it dawned on me that the following Rune would be pretty neat
Trail of Ice
Leave a trail of ice in your wake that slows all monsters in its wake by 60% over 3 seconds.
I'd venture that it would be more useful than Action Shot.
Or... how about a freeze for 1 to 1.5 seconds.
Our limited Discipline regen would prevent us from being becoming the next CM Wiz... but a freeze defensive utility would be really interesting. I could definitely see a skill rotation that involves dropping Spike Traps and then Vaulting over a pack to proc CtW.
Yes, 10% change to bust your !@#, lol.
You don't need trail of ice
Caltrops is great, I use it all the time. Was just throwing out a suggestion that would allow you to tie CC to Vault... thereby freeing a slot.
Was just a random thought, I'm cool with what we have... just thought others would find it to be interesting.
Stack 5-10% freeze on gear then you don't need trail of ice.
^ this is the problem with this idea, but the problem behind being people don't like to stack up affix on gear instead everyone is blinded by their dps and the mp level they think they need to reach.
You don't need trail of ice
Well duh you don't need it, there's tons of ways to slow already. Doesn't mean it isn't a cool idea. :)
Personally I like the idea, it's nice to tie some utility to vault for those that don't just want to run tumble. In my old tank build I used to have 75% CC/3+ APS and with nightstalker I had tons of extra disc so I would vault into/over packs with ToC, and often zig zag over them repeatedly for the extra ToC damage. Having a rune that would slow mobs as you vaulted away from them would be really cool. I like the idea. Would be nice if it did a bit of damage too. Freeze would probably be OP.
Trail of Nyan~
Trail of Nyan
Leaves a trail of fish smell that deals damage by 150% of weapon damage, and with channeling effect.

I've have a similar Idea to this which is: Drop mini caltrops when vaulting.
Don't take my Action Shot away from me though. :( Seriously, I love that rune.
Maybe an idea such as yours could work well as a new Legendary Item bonus (i.e. your runed vault would still work the same way, but with the added trail of ice bonus).
