Why no pet battles in raids?

I understand why dueling isn't allowed in raids: you could duel to build up rage/RP/Chi/procs before pulling a boss, or get feared into/disengage into a boss unintentionally, but why not pet battles?

It would be a decent way to pass time while waiting, say, for a raid leader to fill in a missing spot, or wait for people to come back for a bio break.

Good suggestion, I think. It would give folks something to do while they wait on that one guy who had to go take out the trash or get a coke or something.

For a second, when I read the subject I thought you meant why weren't there raids that featured a portion where players had to win pet battles to advance the raid.

Haha, now that I think about it, that'd make for a fun encounter.

That'd be awesome. Just think of the rage that would happen if pet battles became mandatory for progression.

I would suddenly be an important piece of every raid team!

Ribbons, food, accessories... Or add evolution!

Would they evolve into mounts? We could then have mount battles. Just think of riding around on a Gluth or Chromaggas mount.
