First available / Full Clear Option for LFR?

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Blizzard Developers - How about an option to take the first available spot in LFR and an option for a "full clear" when queuing for LFR? Nothing is worse than to wait out a long queue time only to come in on the last boss or midway through the raid. Now if I'm on a toon that doesn't need any LFR gear and I'm only doing LFR for the valor points, this is great. If however I'm on an alt that is using LFR to quickly gear up it drives me crazy to wait for 30 minutes, kill one boss, then sit in queue again hoping I can start at the beginning. So what say you?
If you have at least one boss killed on that particular "wing" of the raid, you're guaranteed to get in a fresh clear the next time you queue.
But why should I have to wait in a queue TWICE when they could let me chose how to spend my time?

Spend your time leaving a 3/4 run because you can't fill slots
My suggestion to enhance your solution: Put a Call to Arms, with a Satchel of Exotic Mysteries reward for players who are willing to enter a raid that is already in progress.

or just start giving healers satchels, that would speed most of it up since it seems nobody wants to heal them (not that i can blame them)

This isn't true. I don't know if it was a fluke or a bug, but the first Fall of Deathwing I did on my DK was a 3/8 Run, I queued again right after, and got into another 3/8 Run.
Xstunna is correct. I tried LFR on an alt today, I got madness twice in a row after waiting about 15-20 minutes for each pull. Don't get me wrong, I like the LFR function, I do however loathe the queuing process. It could be much better.

It's not guaranteed, but the chance of getting a fresh run is pretty damn high. I've only had the LFR queue system fail me in that regard twice ever.
Out of a few hundred ques across 14 85's, I've gotten screwed once since the hotfix on the 3/4

But I guarentee if they spammed the fact that 4/4 = nearly gurantee'd 0/4, that madness groups wouldn't get dozens of spams from healers dropping
