Playing a Deathknight on the beta right now, level 69 and just about to tank UK, I have to say I think spec and player skill will matter alot with DK's. Mitigation can be VERY high if you play your cards right and spec properly. On my Dk, I have about 17% starting parry and after 1 rotation I usually have around 27% parry for the rest of the fight. I'm blood spec, so I get the healing even when in frost presence, I have tools to heal myself and increase the amount of heals going in on me and I have some quick mitigation buttons.Chances are, its not so much gear with DKs at the moment, but just knowing how to tank as one that will make it so DK's have to learn as they go. With any other tanking class, you have nearly 2 years or so, longer with warriors, of how to tank. Pally, go in, judge such and such, cast holy shield or whatnot and consecrate like mad. And so on. Now we have a brand new class with none of that back knowledge. So it might take awhile.
