Just a quick pointer, this was originally the rare drop mount from Malygos 10 (with Azue Drake from Malygos 25).
Oculus was by far the least ran Dungeon, both before and after the advent of the LFD tool (Looking for Dungeon group), due to it's non-scaling drake mechanic and general complications in navigating (being the first[?] 3D dungeon). Many players would leave LFD straightaway when they saw they'd been matched to Oculus. They added the LFD Oculus bag to entice people to stay and complete the run, and needed a big sweetner, so they moved the Blue Drake from Malygos 10 into the bags. Azure Drake went from Malygos 25 only to dropping on both difficulties.
With the release of the next expansion, with Oculus no longer being accesible through the LFD tool, they moved the Blue Drake BACK to Malygos, originally it seemed to be 10-man only, with the Azure Drake returning to 25 man only, but that seems to have been abandoned at some stage. I was lucky enough to get my Blue Drake from an Oculus bag, but when I got my Azure drake from Malygos 10 in THIS expansion, BOTH drakes dropped at the same time!
It's also worth noting that the Blue Drake is also available from the 'Satchel of Exotic Mysteries' given to healers/tanks who queue for Dungeons when their role is in particular need.
I don't think this is the same situation as the Living Fluid at all, which I see as being more like the 'Searing Scorchling' - a time limited pet which Blizzard later reintroudced elsewhere when public opnion demanded it's return. I don't think they'll make the same mistake this time and I fully expect the Fluid to be available from Failbags/Satchels/Normal mode/Coin Rolls once it's LFR is no longer relevant. 5.4 PTR patch notes already seem to suggest that it may be available from any coin roll in ToT (and hopefully we'll be getting more than 3 coins per week).
