@Squatch: I can say from personal experience, the difference between raid necessity and heroic necessity in Cataclysm is HEAVILY noticeable. I had healers praising my survivability in heroics, and then when we started raiding, I had to reforge and even revamp my spec because my stat weighting wasn't working. I tried to go for the hit cap for a while to pump some threat into bosses, but bottom line is the mitigation stats are far too necessary to reforge them into hit and/or expertise. This is more because of the new healing style than tanking in general. Healers need to be very smart with mana. Wasting mitigation stats on hit or expertise means more mana spent in raids keeping the tank alive. You can get the threat without necessarily being hit-capped. You can't survive a boss fight if you're never mitigating.
