907 - Recount: Healing Efficiency

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

Addition information provided to healers.

Please provide any additional information below.

Everyone will agree that Recount is a 'must-have' addon.  However, with change in healing rotations recently to emphasize mana conservation, only two windows will give Healers a decent overview of their output: the "Healing Done", and "Overhealing Done".  This had led, unfortunately to many players spamming AOE heals and mana-expensive single-target instant heals and HOTs in order to boost their overall heals-per-second (HPS) and keep their raid topped up.  This has led to many healers finding that they are out of mana before the encounter is finished.  

I propose then a third counter: possibly named "Healing Efficiency", which would measure which healer was best able to time his or her healing spell with the group/raid member that needed it the most - effectively eliminating wasteful overheals and lost mana.  The calculation for this list would be quite simple:  subtract "Overhealing Done" from "Healing Done"  Higher numbers equate to more timely heals and efficient use of mana; lower numbers is simply spam healing.
