I use Com heal TONS with Tani - it is VERY mana efficient.

You obviously don't solo in Underfoot.

Even with these blocked if you only have one merc it should not be on reactive. With 1khp less than you but 200ac more, blocking devout elixir and CH (I leave PR unblocked) is the difference between being able to reliably box T8 names with merc healing, and having trouble staying up on T7 names with merc healing.

I find mercs are more of a back up healer in higher level content. If you want a real healer make a friend that is a cleric, druid or shaman.

I am for the party of nerfing Mercs and invest more into Advertising and appealing to new players...

That's just because you hate mercs not because they can't do it :p. I have yet to find content I can't do with mercs where needed. I did fire in the hole with mercs last night and that's the hardest group content pre-T9 that exists.

EQ doesn't have enough real healers to nerf mercs at this point.

Bottom line is, I died soloing because the merc tried casting Recoup on me instead of a real heal. So, I blocked complete heal and recoup and now I get nothing but effective heals without waiting for cast time. It isnt rocket science. Wait for long cast times and not immediate heals or don't.
