PvP set bonuses unbalanced in PvE

Data has been taken from Wowhead and ingame tooltips and may be inaccurate.

First of all, I'll make it clear that Heroic 4T14 is better than 4pc ilvl483 PvP gear for pretty much every class. The issue is that easily attainable PvP gear will greatly outpace available gear for some classes until Tier 14 becomes available.

Gloves: Improves the range of your Shock and Wind Shear spells by 5 yards.
Nothing to see here.

4pc: When you cast Prayer of Mending, the initial target is blessed with a Holy Spark increasing the healing done by your next Flash Heal, Greater Heal or Holy Word: Serenity by 50% for 10 sec.
Not really great for Holy, decent for Disc.

Gloves: Increases the critical effect chance of your Flash of Light by 2%.
2pc: Increases the damage and healing of your Holy Shock spell by 10%.
4pc: When you cast Word of Glory using 3 Holy Power you will gain 1 Holy Power.
I can't comment on the 4pc, but freebies are always nice.

Absolutely nothing.

And the winner is...

4pc: Reduces the cooldown of your Swiftmend ability by 2 sec.
4pc: Reduces the cooldown of your Ironbark ability by 90 sec.

Reduces the cooldown of Swiftmend to 13 sec *and* makes Ironbark 12 sec duration, 30 sec cooldown.
For those who are curious, the PvE 4pc reduces Swiftmend's cooldown by 3 sec and nothing else.
