I suppose it makes us a little different from warriors and bears, but it is part of the class design. My physical damage as a paladin tank is a very, very small portion of my threat. The entire design of tanking as a paladin is centered on our ability to generate threat through holy damage (because our 90% threat multiplier from righteous fury only affects holy damage). We are the mana tanks, and as such our threat comes from magic.That said, with the obvious move away from holy damage for ret pallies, I'd expect to see some more direct melee skills brought around for you guys in WotLK.
