You could try to see who is attacking you but aoe range doesn't mean they are attacking you, just means they are in range of your spells.

Unfortunately I haven't played with the combat log much and definitely not the new way of doing things. You will have to test the functionality yourself. Look at an addon that access the combat log in recent times and test it out with some low powered mobs that won't kill you while you test it out. Or look at an existing rotation helper and see if that does something similar.

How much you will be able to do UI wise once combat starts I don't know but rotation helpers do seem to work during combat, so it may be just how they find the information out. They may be ignoring the combat log and relying on cooldowns and auras on you or the target.
