I've been running into this, too. I can only get into raids as a healer, though I went from 1 to 80 as a tank and still tank heroics regularly. Since I'm in as a healer I don't get to roll on anything to upgrade my tank gear until all the other tanks and DPS have passed on it, which still is pretty rare. My healing gear has far surpassed my tanking gear, and the occasional time I get into a raid as a tank, I feel barely adequately geared. It's enough to drive a guy crazy. I've been thinking for a while about switching my bear spec for a boomkin spec and go in as DPS, but I really enjoy tanking more than any other aspect. I only picked up healing when Blizzard added dual-spec and because that seemed to be a more needed spec on a lot of raids.
