No reason, just that real avoidance has diminishing returns so it is hard to get 83% of that. Assuming your base stamina/AC set has around 23% dodge/parry/block and 8% miss or so, you need to fill...

If Algalon has a true dual wield mechanic then the total % you need from miss+block+parry+dodge is significantly less (around 19% less if I recall correctly because the boss has extra +miss). This...

Lose 3 points from shield spec, pick up 3/3 critical block (for the crit % on shield slam) and 2/5 cruelty. Spec 15/5/51. Cap...

I would say no, 1/2 SoA and 5/5 imp berserker is better because 2% AP > 2% STR. This is counterintuitive because at an individual stat level 1STR>2AP, but because of raid buffs that are AP only...

Yes, what the actual values are when they "fix" this are still to be determined. Regardless, mace spec should give us around a 1% per talent point boost, so we have options if we want to go 1h fury...

Since 1h fury has come up in discussions again, I would like to share my tests on the PTR that Mace Spec does still apply to all attacks even if the 1h mace is held in the off-hand.

Wouldn't help because prot PvP uses defensive stance almost exclusively now (dance for intercept sometimes).
