I think one thing that Blizzard can do would be to change the default behavior of the Tab button. Currently it just cycles between the mobs in range/direction. Lots of people just use tab to select their target and dps away. For each person, it always ends up being different targets, and anybody who's done randoms will see the tank on one target, and each dps on their separate targets blasting away. In order to select the Tank's target, either the tank has to mark targets and the dps has to promise to stay on targets (somebody always doesn't), or dps needs to create macros or UI changes (it's not the default) to target or show the tank's target. If Blizzard were to change the Tab button to select the Main Tank's target, it would make it much easier for people to select the "correct" target. If there is no Main Tank specified (solo or small questing group situations) the Tab button would simply do what it does now. If there are multiple Main Tanks (raid situation) it could cycle through the tanks targets. If there is only one Main tank, it would always target what the tank is currently targeting. Shift+Tab, Ctrl+Tab could be the default keybinding to force the current behavior.
