Would anyone care to explain this one to me?
Account Name: XXXXXXXXXXXX
Offense: Use of Third Party Automation Software
Software: Deadly Boss Mods
This account has been found to have employed third party software designed to automate many aspects of the World of Warcraft game play experience. Such software runs contrary to the essence of World of Warcraft and provides an advantage over other players. In addition, use of this software can lead to exploitation and destabilization of the World of Warcraft server economy. As such, this account has been closed and will not be reopened under any circumstances. The recurring subscription on the account has been disabled to prevent further charges.
Any disputes or questions concerning this account action can only be addressed by the World of Warcraft Account Administration department.

As Basket already posted: every big raiding guild uses boss mods since years...and I don't know anyone (expect you oO) who got banned for using an _AddOn_
I found a quite good blue post in this thread on the official forums:
Quoted from ""Slouken""
If you haven't been explicitly warned by a GM, or seen an official Blizzard response about an AddOn or UI modification, then don't worry about it.
So this mail seems to be an mistake, you should contact <!-- e --><a href="mailto:WoWAccountAdmin@Blizzard.com">WoWAccountAdmin@Blizzard.com</a><!-- e -->

Another guildie of mine who seems to know what's what has a theory that the person who was banned was using a botting program and was calling it "Deadly Boss Mods" as a disguise. Regardless, I'd be in contact with Blizz and ask about it just to make sure.
