In fact, im inclined to point out that there are times when Melee DPS belong somewhere other than behind a Raid Boss. Dragons immediately come to mind with their tail swipe, as well as bosses that require no clumping, ala Kelthuzad or AnubRekhan - Even Thaddius is a pretty obvious example.

I only mention this because the 'Always always ALWAYS' made it sound unfathomable that there are exceptions; As opposed to being a hyperbole

You can still be behind dragons and avoid tailswipes. You just have to be somewhat off to the side. If a boss is facing a tank at 12 o'clock, you can stand at roughly 4 or 8 o'clock and avoid tailswipes, yet for game mechanics you're behind the boss. Same goes for KT - Melee just spread out from 3 to 9 o'clock. Only Thaddius is a good example.Most dragons have cleaves and/or breaths anyway, so you really don't want to be in front of them. ;)
