The Frost tree currently is far from being a Tanking tree. If Death Knights want to tank they will most likely have to have a Hybrid spec.The current Death Knight Frost tree is hugely focusing on CC, while at the same time having a few protection-like talents high up in the tiers here and there.Pretty much, half of the top tiers of Frost is CC, the rest mostly being damage, and a few for protection (aggro/survivability). Full Frost will most likely be a PVP spec, considering the HUGE amounts of abilities Death Knights will have with it in CCing Melee and anyone else.Personally I think this is a great idea, set specs like the ones Paladins have don't work and remove from the nature of Hybrid. With this Death Knights can DPS effectively and off tank when they need to (that is spell casters). Death Knight's talent trees obviously model off of Feral Druids, and Feral Druids are currently the best hybrid spec able to tank and do effective DPS in a raid environment without needing to subout like Prot Paladins or to a lesser extent Prot Warriors (depending on how many your guild uses) when they are not needed (or any other DPS/healing for that matter).
