I think you're reading too much into a spoken typo. I'm 100% sure he meant ShoR and Inq, not HS and Inq.

Hard to blame him given the (Hammer/Shield/Holy)+(of)+(Wrath/the Righteous) ability naming system.

I dunno, I'm looking forward to Holy the Righteous, myself.

What the hell is a Shieldhammer and where can I get one? Holy or not, that sounds awesome.

Why on earth would you do that? 3HP on use will most likely be prot only and I don't usually heal as prot so I don't care about the healing reduction...

If you were using Divine Plea for 3 HP to be spent on a WoG heal/absorb, it would suck for it to be 50% less effective.

also Seal of Insight being common as a tank... would be bad if that were subject to less healing as well (not sure if it is). the mana is tiny, so i guess you could switch the order and just press twice to cancel, but i don't want to waste time if i need to heal with it.

or for your word of glory use a /cancelaura divine plea /cast word of glory macro
that way if u use DP for the mana and SotR after u keep the mana but if u decide to WoG you dont gimp yourself and u wont accidentally hit the macro twice and cancel it
or better yet blizz could remove the healing reduction seeing as how its an outdated mechanic it was only added so that pallys would stop using it ever CD without thought

and im not logged in atm but i know pre 4.0 that divine plea listed only our healing spells and only affected them and not seal of light (or trinket procs etc that heal) so id say that seal of insight is still unaffected

The tooltip now says reduces all healing done.

Actually testing it > relying on tooltips. Tooltip errors or omissions are pretty much a norm by now.
