The only time a guard is required on a healer in flashpoints is when dps have gold fever and leaving bunches of weak mobs beating on the healer.

DPS your job is to kill all the weak mobs while the tank gets control of the dangerous ones, this means getting agro off the healer if necessary. If you don't then the healer has no alternative than to ask for a guard as a little bit of extra insurance when taking a lot of threat from multiple weak mobs.

TLDR: If dps do their job properly the healer never needs guard in flashpoints.
If dps are blithering idiots, put it on the healer.
