How to get started.

I've specced holy and done some heroics, and actually this fight is quite tricky as a holy paladin.
Using cleanse is 1 GCD you aren't healing.
Casting a Holy Light with beacon on your tank will heal for much more than the cleanse has saved, UNLESS the stack is more than1.
So I tend to Sacred shield people when I have spare GCD so that when they are poisoned, I don't need to bother to cleanse it and can heal elsewhere. Also using Holy Wrath to stun the poison casters is >> cleansing the debuff off 5 pepople afterwards!
He should be cleansing anyone with more than 1 stack though, and bubbling if he gets blown in the air on low HP!

Yep, all the time, myself and others. Threat is not an issue so it's easily woven in, it really helps the healers, and there's that small satisfying feeling of glee when you demonstrate again just how useless a warrior is compared to a true hybrid.

I have had a mouseover macro for Cleanse set up for a long time now (wa the first one I used), and the key's in easy reach - I Cleanse all the time.
Because mouseover casting is soooo much easier than target casting.
If you have Auto Self-Cast turned on you can not mouseover to heal anyone else, you can not mouseover to cleanse anyone else. you can not mouseover LoH anyone else, oops just wasted a 20 min CD.
When people say they need green drake for achievement I tell them to take self-cast off, so they can mouseover heal anyone in the party ui, and still target Eregos.

From this I guess you mean by "mouseover" the click-targetting that the ui uses by default (when you have no valid target) rather than the [target=mouseover], right?
I'd rather be able to cast on myself in one click (particularly buffs and emergency buttons) and set up macros to use mouseover on others. The issue I have with auto-self cast is that not having it makes self-targetting more complicated, and in solo play and roles other than healing, self-targetting buffs is what you do most often. On top of that, a lot of the time you'll end up macroing things anyway, and auto-self cast allows macros to use  in place of [target=target][target=player], saving space.
I can see your point on the Eregos fight, because you wouldn't be making macros for your vehicle abilities, so the click-targetting would be the better option.
