Healing gear with Defense Rating for a commando healer!? What's going on?

So ever since the 1.2 update, 2 pieces of the Tionese Commando Healing set are having the "Defense Rating" stat in them and I just don't get it. Is this a mistake or can anyone explain why?

I don't see how this will benefit a Trooper healing?

The items are:
Body Armor

While the rest of the set does have appropriate stats like they should:
Gauntletshttp:: //

Shut up, Ackbar!

Its not just the Healer gear, all the Tionese trooper (and BH) gear has defense on it now. Not just on the vendor, but previously useful/purchased gear is suddenly less useful, as well. This was posted about in the Customer Service forum and went ignored by CS.

This also happened when I reversed-engineered earpieces. It added a defense stat to the healing one.
I thought I RE'd the tanking one by accident but nope, alacrity + defense on it.

I guess BW thinks that little extra defense stat will save the healers from dying or they must think VG tanks need help with faster instant cast skills?

Terribad itemization.

It looks like it's been fixed in today's update.

After a login today I noticed the "+23 Defense Rating" on my Tionese Body Armor had been replaced with "+23 Power"

Shut up, Ackbar!
