Mine's a little unconventional, as this is the spec that SV hunters take when they get the 2pc T9 bonus (Improved Stings while still keeping Noxious Stings). I personally find it unconventional, because of the 1/3 Resourcefulness. But, maxing out Master Tactician and having 2/3 Hunting Party for the increased Agility percentage evens out I think. It also has 1/3 Expose Weakness, which is the only thing I'm wondering about; I've read somewhere having 45% crit or more having 1 point in it is fine, but if anyone could give me an exact number, that'd be sweet. My glyphs are Explosive Shot, Serpent Sting, and Steady Shot.
Typical MM spec assuming hit cap is met. Also ISS instead of Arcane Shot (since I have high passive armor pen). The only point I'm always unsure of is the 1 in Efficiency, or do 2/2 Go for the Throat. Glyphs are Serpent Sting, Aimed, and Chimera. Pretty basic.

My Current Specs (Surv):http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#coZ0eVooZx0ci0cIheuIhsh:NAbMmz
As far as I know, this is the cookie cutter surv spec (I prefer marks, don't research surv as much). Some people prefer 2/3 Hunting Party to put another point in Master Tactition, and like the point in Improved Aspect of the Hawk in the surv tree as well, wherever it can "fill in" a gap. Personally, I prefer giving replenishment constant uptime as well as a little bit of extra AP/Crit (even if it's not much, as you get better gear it starts to scale a lot better), to an extra 2% crit for 8 seconds. I like the point in Imp Mark since I'm nowhere near the haste cap. Glyphs are self explanatory (I hope).
Any suggestions on my specs? What are yours? :P
Just going to comment on your Surv spec now, since my spec is the same if you include what I'm going to say now.
-3/3 Expose Weakness is more of a waste. 2/3 will make sure it's up whenever possible, unless youre severly undergeared.
-You don't have Explosive shot.. :p? I assume you just forgot that or so. If not, get the point out of Imp hawk and put it there.
-2/3 Hunting Party gives me a 100% uptime fo Replenisment already, so I'd say put that point+ the one from expose weakness in Master Tac.Edit
: I wouldn't take that Hawk glyph either. Serpent Sting will be way more usefull :)

This is currently the highest possible theoretical DPS Survival build AFAIC:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#cZ0eVoobZx0ci0cIhekAhsk:ANfM0z
As long as you have 2-pc T9 (SrS crits allow you to have 1 point in Expose Weakness)
and for MM:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#cxbZzeVoRhzGIsguAox00b:AfbM0z
Alliance hunters only have to have 192 hit rating with this build, allowing max ArP/Agi stacking depending on your gear.
