Are there many four-mans which absolutely require a specced & geared healer or are there many where one or two players with limited healing (specced/geared for DPS but capable of healing) can share the load?

As a future dedicated healer who got very limited time in Beta, I'm wondering how often groups will be stymied without one of four being a dedicated healer, or maybe how often people will say they just need more DPS.

Bonus question, are the four-mans you've seen tuned so that a Smuggler/healer will be sufficient? It seems like a Counselor/healer will be more of a spike-damage healer and I worry a bit that high-end ones will be beyond Sawbones' capabilities. It seems unlikely, but if say the final boss is maximum-spike DPS then I'd wonder.
