It really depends on the player.Players that actually want to take leadership roles are rarer than tanks. I, for example, was a tank, but didn't care about leading 5-mans (I would let anyone who stepped up for the job and proved minimally competent lead), hated leading raids (I would step up if the raid leader was doing a really horrible job, otherwise meh), and would never, ever consider assuming a permanent guild or raid leadership position.This is often a constant with games. Players that actually find leadership roles fun (proper leadership, not just the thrill of power) are rare, and until Blizzard starts to hire professional raid and guild leaders to organize other players, I wouldn't want to impose leadership on any unwilling player.(It might be an interesting idea. Hire special GMs to organize and lead guilds and raids, and charge something extra from players that want guaranteed spots on Blizzard-organized raids and guilds. Those special GMs wouldn't even need any special powers, they would just be Blizzard employees dedicated to organizing fun and fair groups. They could also serve as a way for Blizzard to gather more direct feedback on features and tweaks to make guild and raid organization easier and more fun.)
