Thx law, after reading your post and watching some frost pvp vids I just respec'd to something (edit: very close to your spec
) to try out Frost. Will miss the mount and run speed, but that's about all I think.

Here's a 2k-worthy DK + Holy Pally Arena build:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=jf0MZGMxthxzRGRVcstf0h
Killing Machine procs much more often than you think when you have Icy Talons. It allows for controlled bursts when following with a Deathchill & Empower Rune Weapon. It's also very possible to have a large ToT when using Pally Stuns + Chains of Ice + other goodness in coordination.
Frost Aura + Acclimation is EXTREMELY important. It gives you a gigantic edge against Death Knight mirror matches and when fighting your worst enemy, the Frost Mage.
Unbreakable Armor is ignored because you'll probably never want to use Rune Tap or a Frost Rune for this spell instead of Chains of Ice, Howling Blast, Obliterate, or IcyTouch.
Virulence is taken for the 30% dispel resistance. Anyone who doesn't know why that's good needs to play some Arena from a healer's perspective (I played a Priest).
Blood is taken for RP generation, upping crit even more on Obliterate, and for a raw 6% increase in damage. That's sexy.
With a Holy Paladin partner, you don't need talents such as Toughness or Rune Tap simply because he fills in your shortcomings in this build. Getting kited too long where Toughness would've helped? Hand of Freedom or a simple Cleanse. Dying too soon and need a few seconds to live? Well, a Holy Paladin's main job is healing, you know.
And how about that, my build still takes the extra range.
