Disc is the PERCEIVED stronger healer when, in actuality, holy is just as strong.
I think there is certainly a certain amount of this. Additionally the current iteration of the lvl 90 talents and the way that interacts with DA is pretty big . the discrepancy is greatly reduced in 10's simply due to having fewer targets. Relative strength of a healer is also going to depend largely on the amount of damage your raid is taking. Disc is balanced around the power of the absorbs we bring and if we run out, there are far fewer options to get health bars filled back up.
