You should not be scared to tank on a DK, it's incredibly simple. As the above posters have mentioned, the initial threat is Outbreak, HS/DS/RS, multitarget is DND, Outbreak, Pest, HS/DS/RS. The only decision making part is figuring out which mobs will not pull and must be gripped or CCed at range (casters, etc.) which is not hard.The new mastery which stacks Blood shields have made DK tanks OP imo, with vampiric blood, rune tap, ghoul sac and WOTN combined with our high avoidance, I find myself able to survive easily any encounter. Adding vengeance in with the damage buffs to blood, my tank is pulling 8K+ in heroics as well, so high DPS, high EH, high survivability, tons of defensive cooldowns, it's about as easy as tanking gets, and I don't even have good gear.

Hush with that OP tank talk! If anything we're underpowered and need more buffs.*wiiiiiiink*

You forgot bloodworms.As a healer, I find death knights to be great tanks. They hold aoe threat amazingly well, they have tons of self-healing, and they Deathgrip mobs off me. They're my favorite tanks to heal for.
