Dont consider HM LI as a flashpoint, it's basicly a mini raid for all the players who QQ'd in the first 3 months about how easy the game was. I agree if BW continue down this path it will hurt them in the back pocket, but if your willing to learn and go back week after week then eventually you will succeed in completing this flashpoint. HM LI is a gear & skill check, both which will improve over time if you have the patience and desire to complete it.
Casuals can run it on Storymode in pretty bad gear. Multiple levels of content is a good thing, if the new content doesn't assume you've done the previous stuff then people who have done the previous stuff will find it rediculously easy. Once you're in pretty much full columi you should be fine doing Lost Island just so long as nobody in your group messes up - and it is that low tolerance of mistakes which makes pugging HM LI an idea that most of us shudder at.
