Depends. If the heal of WoG is higher than the absorb from HS, you can actually choose between healing and preventing damage.
Big importance also will have Shield of Righteous block chance bonus.

So in trivial content we'll use SotR every 3 HoPo and we'll gear 10% below CTC, whereas in other content we'll be using WoG after or right before large predictable burst and Holy Shield elsewhere.

That's my idea. And in this case it would actually mean we really get a choice on what to use our HP with, differently from now.

Or just WoG over ShoR if you have lowish health, and HS if you have highish health but are afraid of immediate damage, ShoR being reserved for "I'm not in immediate danger so let me smooth things out for the next few seconds".

Chances of us actually being able to block every hit in Pandaria are like 0.000000001

Or depending on HoPo generation and ShoR's shield buff length you could do it all!
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

...and thus we'll need hit/exp to maintain the HoPo gen?
HUZZAH! How many points do I receive? :D

Well they kind of mentioned "making hit/exp more appealing to tanks".
Look at wars / bears, they got skills generating Rage... I find it possible that they wont generate rage if they miss.

Brings up a good point, now since recources are primarily spent on damage/threat, and with the massive threat bonus, hit/exp don't have much if any priority right now. If/when they switch our resource use to apply to defence, getting hit/exp capped will take a huge jump in priority.

My feelings on this are mixed. On one hand, I don't have a huge issue with it, if they are willing to roll in some extra hit/ext to help out tanks that are starting out, and early in a new expac, then we should be able to make up the difference. On the other hand, every point spent on hit/exp is a point not spent on an actuall defensive stat. Towards the end of an expac when gear is overflowing with stats, it's usually not an issue, but in the begining it can be problematic.

I'm leaning more towards the feeling that if they want this model (resource use for active mitigation), they should make the base line resource generation predictable and consistant enough that an unlucky bout with the RNG wont spell a wipe because you didn't have enough resources to pop the move you need to use at that point of a fight.
