They wouldn't have to reduce self-heals, assuming it doesn't proc Blood Shield anymore, only thing that would call for self-healing nerfs would be armor buffs (which I would enjoy).
I think we're getting a little too hung up on Death Knights though. While CTC would ruin Death Knights, it extends further than that. It's just bad for the game. It means that CTC tanks effective health is propelled to ridiculous points, and that it becomes nearly impossible to kill them. Combine that with the fact that it's mitigation based, meaning less healer mana wasted, healer's mana pool, efficiency, and regeneration scaling, and you'll have us brought back to the Wrath paradigm in no time. And the Dev's have already stated very specifically that they didn't want to do that.
