Using only Inner Fire:
Disc's PoH (with DA): 28907 (+19546) = 48453
Holy's PoH: 29041
Now with Chakra: Sanctuary:
Holy's PoH: 36301
Would you care to revise your statement?
You should add Echoes of Light in there.
You also can't just compare PoH. Holy's PoM and level 90 talents are a lot stronger in sanctuary than the same spells as disc.
Not saying disc wouldn't still be ahead, but it won't be quite as big of a gap.
With EoL, best case scenario puts the PoH+EoL healing at about 42472 in Chakra.
Without Chakra: 33106.
By rights, yes, it would be a good idea to compare PoM, the 90s, Sanctuary, CoH, etc, but it's much harder to accurately forecast the appropriate numbers for Disc because DA affects them only on crits.

In it's current form, it is a penalty
. No other healer must swap and maintain stances at all times
to pull their weight and remain competitive with other healers nor is any other healer forced to make a trade-off in terms of power. Asking Holy to forget that they're suddenly healing at 75% power (at best) in one of two areas whenever they make a stance choice is absurd.
You're also apparently forgetting that Chakra did
fade after 30 seconds until 4.0.6, where it was bumped to 1 minute. It was changed again in 4.1, set to last until canceled. Only it did about the same thing it does now and you had to constantly refresh it—and god forbid something went sideways in raid and you suddenly needed to be in the other stance, but couldn't because it still had 20 seconds left on CD.
If Blizzard wants to re-conceptualize Chakra as an actual
cooldown that isn't ridiculously punitive, then I'm sure the players would be ecstatic. If it were on a minute, or two minute, or three minute cooldown and was a burst CD, it'd be amazing. Obviously numbers would need to be tweaked, but it would be a far better ability than it currently is.
I'm 100% sure that Chakra, in its current form, could turn passive and Holy's numbers wouldn't be drastically higher.
