@Tank2P: The 20% DnD damage gets you Nothing during boss fights, except maybe if you're unholy specced. Trash hasn't been a problem for a long time.

Indeed. Bears and Warriors get the bonus to two abilities each, one AoE, one Single-target (Swipe/Shockwave//Lacerate/Shield Slam). Paladins get a 20% bonus to Hammer of the Righteous, which is used in both Single-target and AoE situations, so it doesn't matter much that they only get one bonus. DK, on the other hand, get only an AoE ability.The problem comes in picking the single-target ability, and making sure that it doesn't become too desirable as to mess up delicate DK rotations (for instance, if they buffed Icy Touch, that might destabilize the balance between specs, and also between IT/PS and the two-rune attacks OB/DS/SS). The only real option is Rune Strike. If 20% is too much, maybe 10% would suffice, but DK should gain a single-target damage boost in their 2t10 as well.

Yeah, that's the issue with a class that can tank effectively in all 3 trees, with different, but overlapping skill priorities. For the other classes, you can (pretty much) only tank in the single tank tree, so it's easier to say, "Every Prot Pally will use HotR, so we can buff that." DKs are obviously not so cut and dried.
