So you can spam Steady Shot as MM?
Hunters were relegated to spamming a Steady Shot macro while Beast Master spec'd for the entirety of the Burning Crusade raid cycle. Sure, it put us right behind Azzinoth'd Rogues for top dps, but it was f***** BORING. Combine that with the being dead last in arena representation, and BC was a very forgettable expansion for this class- and left me with a permanent foul taste with the BM spec.
I have been a hunter since before BW existed, I am not a newcomer. I am well aware of what TBC was. BM MoP is nowhere near what BM TBC was, so there is no reason to "crater" BM so you can simply spam Steady as MM (granted, you won't be spamming Steady nearly as much as what TBC had...but consider that nothing was worth casting as BM except steady shot, that was a design flaw).
MM can be brough up to speed without gutting BM, and enough hunters would like to be BM simply because they like the spec better.
And not because it is a "easy spec". It is easy to play at its minimal efficiency, but to maximize your output,you have to juggle just as much as a MM or SV player has to.
