Call it whatever you want the difficulties should all match up properly instead of being shoddy and all over the place. If you go into a heroic you should know what kind of difficulty you're going to face.
I agree with this. I just did "Fall of the Locust" on Taris. Myself as tank and group leader, a genuine healer, and 2 dps. The quest level is 16; we were all level 19. Although none of us performed perfectly, we made use of CC and target marking to determine kill order. After 2 hours and 3k in repair bills, we made it to the final boss. Each of the bosses was a pushover, but the trash packs of 7 mobs with instant summons on pulls were crazy hard, with incoming spike damage of up to 75% of my health pool.

Honestly, I crave this level of difficulty. Very satisfying on an adrenaline level (although the self-rez cooldowns eventually hit 10 mins, which slowed down the pacing). The problem was, after all of that work, all I got from the quest was the choice of a low-stat blue item or 1 Taris Commendation. Honestly, at this level of difficulty - just short of bleeding edge, Hard Mode raids - I'd expect 2 purples or browns to drop off of the last boss.
