I'll admit that the DR on paralysis may be a good reason, but there are other classes that play just fine together even when they rely more on CC than monks and share DRs (Shadowplay etc.).
As for getting some quick brew stacks - Even if people go with Chi Brew (I still have my doubts about it, we'll see), its uses would primarily be during burst to prolong it and secure a kill after cds. All of these reasons are too uncertain before live, so we'll just wait and see.
Finally, as for leveling monks, the leveling time between 50-80 back in the days is probably only slightly shorter than 1-90 today, especially with looms and monk buffs. And lets not forgot that plenty of people actually play monks. They just get stuck at lower rating, which is more or less the issue here.
