As a Survival hunter, I found that if I did my old rotation employing all the previously known spells (SrS, BA, ArS, ExS) I did significantly less damage. When I added in Dire Beast and aMoCs I was coming close. When I threw in Rapid Fire and Readiness I had the ability to burst. I didn't realize how much I missed the ability to burst. I didn't even need to use the valor trinket to feel like a king. I like my wow 5.0 talents and glyphs. I really like the defensive attributes around Deterrence (100%/50% resist and 1min CD). Marked for Death isn't a bad thing either.
Now all of this is a much bigger job. Much more complexity! I look at that with approval. If better hunters can do more in a better way and get more damage that's a good thing.
If you think of A Murder of Crows as a DoT, you can also think of Dire Beast and even your own pet as DoTs. Add SrS, BA, and even ExS and you've got six DoTs. Thankfully, you don't really need a bar to watch your pet (though honestly they're pretty complex). Our biggest DoT (ExS) doesn't need to be watched anymore thanks to how they can all be dumped in as fast as is smart. Still we have many more DoTs and cooldowns to watch.
I put together a pretty nice NeedToKnow configuration to watch all this stuff, which I'll share in another post soon.
