Prot dps build in raids?

Paladin
OK, I have been a Ret pally up to now and am beginning the transition to Prot. Last week on my hunter main we had a Prot MT in LFR raid who topped the damage meters on most fights, trash and boss. He had a pure haste build and was doing easily over 100k dps, with much more on some pulls.

My question, is it possible/practical, with good gear and a pure haste build, to run 5 mans and raids as a dps with a protection dps build? It seems to generate obscene numbers if done correctly, better than any of the Ret Pally's I've raided with.
No.

You only do tons of damage when you are getting hit (so actually tanking) because of vengeance.

Pull the room and watch your AP scream up to 160k.

Ah, I knew that. Thanks, was overlooking the fact that you need to have aggro and get hit for this to work.
