Dont forget Mages and locks from +spirit gear and trinkets that need a heal cast to proc.
Healer trinkets will be restricted to healers, but it is not obvious whether Mages and Warlocks will be able to roll Need+ on gear with spirit. Blizzard says that they cannot detect spec, so there will be issues with Druids/Shamans rolling on gear for a spec they are not currently playing, but they haven't said if they can detect class. (the "(for elemental shaman, shadow priest, and moonkin)" makes me hopeful, but that could simply be justification for why dps will be getting Need+)
If they can detect class, a piece of spirit gear will have the following classifications: Healer, Shadow Priest. If a cloth healer or a shadow priest rolls need, they will get the +100 roll bonus and automatically win over any Warlocks or Mages rolling.
If they cannot detect class, a piece of spirit gear will have the following classifications: Healer, DPS. If a cloth healer or a shadow priest rolls need, they will get the +100 roll bonus, but since the DPS classification cannot take into account different classes, so will any Mages or Warlocks who roll.
