When you ask a question about "best" there are a couple ways you can read that, in terms of absolute dps or in terms of desirability. Absolute dps numbers are much less relevant then they used to be because dps specs are reasonably (although not perfectly) balanced. By contrast most raids are built be looking at the full toolkit, things like defensive raid cds, and other powerful utility.
Secondly while spec score is better then absolute dps rankings it still suffers from similar issues of allowing special fights to heavily inflate trends. For instance look at combat and assassination on spec score, based on that you would expect to see combat as quite competitive with assassination across all fights when in fact on most fights combat appears behind by 5-10%. Combat however is quite dominent on a number of cleave fights which substantially inflates its spec score.
Raid bots is useful certainly but simply averaging together dps across all fights (even with some normalization applied) ignores important realities of fight specific dps balance.
