No disrespect intended, but do you really think someone that is playing through the game for the first time would be accepted as a tank? Even if they are quick and a very good gamer, the average player now-a-days would throw a fit if the tank was learning the instance they were in. I understand Bliz is trying to make the game easier for new players, but they really should put warnings in about trying to tank while learning. I've tried to bring two people into WoW and both have had lots of trouble with PuGs while leveling because even at level 50 they were expected to know their class and put out a specific amount of DPS. I was the tank and they still got kicked a few times by the rest of the group. We were clear we were friends and that they were learning so when they got kicked I went with them. They were very discouraged by these experiances. This game is NOT friendly to new players unless they can be shielded from the community at large while they learn their class.
