There is now an official Yellow bug thread asking for feed back to help them identify and fix the problem

If you are having this gear problem, please post the info there too so that can collect it all in one place.

Except Eric's post did not confirm that getting healer / tank gear while selecting a dps discipline is a bug.

Keep in mind that usable by your spec means base class and general sets also. Ex: You are a madness sorc, it is intended that the system could drop an Inquisitor set for you (even if that specific set may seem more useful for a healer, it is a base class set usable by all Inquisitors)

Reading this sounds like getting healing set gear (or tank set gear) is intentional as to Bioware, it is coded for the general class and could be used by any character of that class - though I'd argue sets buffing / benefiting abilities tied to a specific discipline are not very useful for other disciplines, the post he made does not state this is a bug.

Anyways - I suspect the actual resolution to our issue of getting set gear that only benefits a discipline we are not playing nor have selected for loot will be something along the lines of 'working as intended'.
