Dps hybrid specs have heals because they are balanced around it. They have the ability to heal themselves and others but sacrifice things like control, defensive cooldowns, and escape mechanisms that the pures have.
Dps hybrid specs have heals because it adds variety to the game. If you take heals away from hybrids, how to you make them viable and different from the existing pures?
And the ability for dps healing hybrids to heal others is hardly the most broken thing in pvp right now. Right now the main problems are warrior burst, hunter (a pure!) burst, and mage (a pure!) control + burst.
I'm not saying they should just remove the spells hybrids have and not compensate them. That would be retarded. The issue of Hybrid vs Pure has been going on for years, and I think it would make more sense to make hybrid dps specs into pure specs. If you want to heal you can always play a healer, but it seems like healing on a DPS class is complicating things.
