Certainly increasing the number of tanks required per raid would help. Consider a 25-man raid group that clears enough bosses that they need 2 troll instances every week to top up their valour points. I use that as an example because if they got their valour, they wouldn't be running randoms.For the sake of simplicity, we'll pretend the entire queue consists of raiders from that one 25-man raid. We'll also pretend that they generally run 5 MS healers with a couple swing DPS/Healer types, and 3 tanks, for a 3/5/17 composition.Their 3 tanks each run two troll instances. The first run takes along 3 healers and 9 DPS, leaving 2 healers and 8 DPS without a run. The tanks run again, using 3 healers and 9 DPS once more. This leaves 4 healers and 16 DPS who need their 2nd troll run to top up their valour, but with no tanks in queue it's not going to happen.So yeah, make tanking more attractive by giving tanks more available raid jobs.They can change taking all they like, but some people dislike change itself and will stop tanking because Bliz "screwed up" what they liked about tanking. So for every change, it needs to be attractive enough to first offset the losses from change itself, then attract additional people so tanking numbers can increase.Fortunately, I'm a pally tank, so I am used to change. My class gets completely reinvented every xpac, and fundamentally changed every patch.
