You say Tier 2 weapons have not been released due to the fact of not enough guilds being able to clear the appropriate content to obtain 372 Weapon's. Let's get down to some numbers.
Current Teams in the WORLD above 2200 with more then 50 games played: 1792
Current PLAYERS in the WORLD above 2200 with more then 50 games played: 5376
Current 25 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE weapons: 407
Current Players in 25 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE weapons: 10175
Current 10 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE weapons: 98
Current players in 10 man raiding guilds with access to at least TWO bosses that drop 372 PvE Weapons: 980
Current players rated 2200 or above in the WORLD for Rated Battlegrounds: 3046
So, lets take a closer look at that shall we?
Players in the world with 2200 rating: 5376~
Players in the world with access to at least TWO 372 PvE weapons: 11,155
This does not take into account players who get subbed in or out of raids, my numbers come from it either being a 25 man guild, or a 10 man guild according to wowprogress.com
TLDR Version: More PvE players have access to people at 2200 rating or higher, this does not take into account the PvE players that ALSO have arena ratings at 2200 or higher.
Edit to add Rated BG's.
If you're having such a god damn issue with PvErs getting the weapons that you have to delay them. Then increase the requirement to 2350 like in S6 or simply just stop giving fake god damn dates and making us log on for nothing.

Problem with this number is it assumes everyone in a 25man guild has access to those bosses and not just the active raid group (which given the changes to guilds grabbing everyone they can to level is a BIG assumption).
This number is probably reasonably accurate as most 10 man guilds tend to have smaller rosters.
