I can see where you're coming from, but I don't think incidental AOE damage outweighs the DPS saved from no DPS getting pinned at all. Particularly if you're in a PUG, no pins on a non-tank can make this fight go a lot smoother.

That said, no one (except maybe a healer) should be kiting these guys. DPS should stand on the railings and be smart about it, i.e. jump down before they're pinned, and then go stand on the tank so the mobs head back there. A DPS running around doing little damage might as well get himself pinned and prevent some chaos. And of course with melee DPS a pinning should just be expected.
Time for a nap.
