The minor buffs that druids received are not going to change the existing dynamic. Absorbs still completely usurp any healing until the absorb is fully used up. Even if you heal a target at the exact same time as an absorb healer, the absorb comes first, no different than if you were seconds late with your heal.

Nothing about that is changing in 5.4.

It's going to depend on format (10/25), encounter, how much each raid caters to each healer's strengths, and each healer's skill.

Ideally in a 10man environment you would want to have both. Disc+druid or disc+monk are two very potent combos, but it's hard to specify over the other in a vacuum, as it depends on the healing team they are operating in.
