I think you missed a major point of lack of tanks which is the need for tanks (at least good ones) to do a lot of homework on encounters. Even trash encounters, the tank is typically the one responsible for marking which mobs to cc, etc. You can carry DPS who don't know the mechanics (most will at least understand to not stand in fire), healers to a lesser degree but can still do their job for the most part even not knowing the whole fight, but tanks will kill themselves at the whole group often if they don't know the encounters. This extra knowledge needed just adds to the complexity of the role. Obviously I run into a ton of new tanks that have no clue regardless, but most people are impatient and won't want that responsibility themselves even when they demand their tanks be both geared and knowledgeable.
