This is something that our guild has already had to deal with, due to a glut of tanks. Our tanks have been expected, for some time now, to build both a dps and a tank suit so that our 25 man raids (where we need less tanks than we have) are full on dps. The "unlucky" tank of the week will respec, don his/her dps gear, and go about beating on things like any other dps. For purposes of loot distribution (we use no dkp), tanks (whether they've respecced to dps for the week or not) are allowed only to roll on tank gear, and may only request offspec dps gear if everyone else passes. They are expected to build their offspec dps suits on their own time, and not take dps gear from our primary dps raiders. Everyone's happy with the set up so far, as it keeps us from having to exclude tanks from raids and doesn't negatively affect our dps raiders. The biggest problem we have seen so far is lower than optimal dps from some tanks as they respec.... but to be honest, that may just be me not knowing how to dps ;-)
