World of Warcraft leaderboards: is arena PvP balanced?

I’ve created a little script in Ruby to grab some data from the World of Warcraft 2v2 and 3v3 PvP leaderboards. On Github you can find the source code of the script:

This script parse these leaderboards pages and count for every class the number of players. Then generate a pie graph to see which classes are most frequent in the leaderboards.

If you run the script with the command ruby wowpvpstats.rb after few seconds you can find two png images like these:

2v2 graph


3v3 graph

Now you can easily see which classes are more present in the leaderboards: druids, shamans and monks dominate the leaderboard while mages and hunters suck. So, what do you think? Is this PvP balanced?
