This is my first major contribution to the forums, so I would like to apologize ahead of time for any mistakes I have made.
I have been a long time fan of balance druid PvP, I started to main one in Cataclysm. For the last three years I have played one and I have enjoyed the fact that they are the underdog, i.e. difficult to play, yet rewarding (The opposite of my frost DK). First off, balance druids were balanced around them being able to cast their major dps spells starfire and wrath. In a PvP situation we are never given the chance to hard cast such an ability.
I really love this thread, thank you so much for taking the time to make it, Aqual. I agree with everything you say. Although I am mostly a Feral Druid, I love to switch it up and play Balance every now and then, but it can be very frustrating.
Balance druids never get a chance to cast, and if we do, it's only about 40-50k damage.
Anything cool we've had, e.g. Starfall stun, Starfire stun, instant roots, has all been taken away - while Rets, DKs, Warriors, etc are able to just nuke people with no worry about being interrupted. It's total BS - I know it, you know it, and Blizz knows it.
Entangling Roots doesnt break so easily from dmg.
New ability: Astral Barrier. Upon reaching an eclipse you gain a shield that abosorbs [some amount of dmg, a sizeable bubble but not large enough that it would need a cd]. While active, damaging spells you cast cannot be interrupted by dmg. (if this second effect was added the shield would probably need to be dispellable to keep it balanced.)
Owlkin Frenzy now has an activated effect in addition to the passive one. When activated, causes your next three wrath or starfire casts take 30%-50% less time to cast. OR it would allow the 3 wraths/starfires to be casted while moving. Only usable while the druid has the passive effect active.

Go about 18 minutes in on the video and that should start up some of the games I had against these guys. Savek/Tupaclol/dominoz are incredibly nice people, as well as glad level players. I just want to give you an idea of how mongoloid our damage can really become, and how weak we are outside of our 3 minute CDs.
