Healing reduction is the only counter to things like a team with Alistar, Soraka, Taric, Heal and Rally combos. And it is good as it is.
If you have a single healer and the other team mass anti-heal against you, great, they won't be countering your allies. If they do a single exec calling, you will be still able to heal area of effects fully in all your allies but the primary target. You will also be able to control lanes as well as you would if such items did not exist, as long as you retreat a bit when you need healing.
Basically if you use your head the counter is not such a big problem. The problem is, people like to whine way mroe than they like to think.
