This is definitely a gray area / chicken and egg issue. There are two ways to approach a list like this, IMO:
1) Best gear you can get without you yourself stepping in to a raid
2) Best gear you can get without being in an organized raid (I.E.: LFR and lower).
In either case, you won't be able to obtain the tailored pieces until someone is doing real raids, but that is only an issue for the first ~week.

Correct, October 9.
