Apart from your broken profile, you really need to cut down on the ellipsis abuse.

I rarely ever cast FoL let alone on the BoL.
For me it comes down to ToR is 3 points or none, and those 3 points are useful in other places. Could be a personal preference, but getting high ranks against other holy pallies should count for something.

40 yards on judgment allows use on cd more than you think. I'm moving around constantly for optimal positioning and not seeing "Not in range" is extremely pleasing.
As far as I'm concerned if one accepts the fact that ToR is mostly worthless, and in not getting it you free up your playstyle considerably, I think I have the cookiecutter spec for this xpac right now. Pursuit isn't needed because Lavarunner exists.
I've tried your posted spec; don't really like it... but it might just be personal preference (which is what Blizz wanted I guess!).
Personally; 1 point in imp judgement is plenty. I am constantly staying within 30 yards of melee (or ranged if we're grouping) in order to maximize LoD usage. If you're not in a position to use this effectively; you've already lost your efficiency from Holy Power. If you're moving constantly when you could be healing (that is, when a boss mechanic isn't requiring you to move); you've already lost overall healing efficiency.
That's the spec I have ended up on. I like it. I prefer it. With no "instant gib" AOE ability in the game that isn't meant to kill you; Aura Mastery is useless. I am referring of course to infest from H-LK. I have found some uses for AM, but they are so few and far between that the benefits it provides are, currently, not worth the point in PVE.
Finally, Blessed Life. The difference in 1 point and 2 points, in a full run, was not very remarkable. Having just ONE point generated an insane number of procs... and with the ICD... fast acting AOE's will proc it once. No more.
What ToR provides, regardless of your healing role, is on demand holy power generation. This is helpful before predictable AOE. HS someone, then fire off 2 FoL or DL on the tank to get yourself capped on HP. Quickly. Then fire off the LoD. This is very useful in situations like Maloriak fued phases when you need on demand AOE healing. You can generate a lot of HP fast, then let loose with quick LoDs.
