First off yes we have quite a few CD's, though only 3 our really cd's and LoH is an emergency heal (massive and awesome). Which gives us throughput on demand, but these make up for lack of spells that we have. Most notably they help us compete with AoE heals in terms of throughput vs priest, or life bloom stacks with druids and other various spell mechanics that we simply don't have. We get CD's to use instead. Never actually healed with shaman's so I can't comment on them but they're in a bad spot right now so its not even fair to compare.
Secondly its not silly, it is easier, but its also less clunky, and if done would allow for easier adjustment of spell cost and healing as blizzard would have a less variable regen number to think about (3330+ mp5 dependent on judging frequency). That makes us too good in content we out gear, and weaker in content we're just barely geared for. This would result in a much more consistent regen for paladins that would be much easier to account for.
