I have to say... all the officers should be able to lead a raid. That just seems like common sense to me. And even if an officer doesn't know something about a fight the knowledge of the whole group should be more then sufficient to get a raid through an encounter.

I'd respectfully disagree. My old guild's recruitment officer, for example, is a witty and entertaining conversationalist, but in a raid he just tunnel-vision dpses whatever's put in front of him. Raid leading requires some level of higher situational awareness.

Again the knowledge of the raid as a whole should be able to get them through an encounter. Just because he has DPS tunnel vision doesn't mean he couldn't help the other DPS figure out what they are supposed to be doing. I tend to do the same thing Melee wise (I am not an officer though) but if another melee DPS was having issues I could tell them what to do in the encounter but I can't really give you a good explanation of what ranged need to do. Raids work best when everyone is helping instead of relying on one person to know everything.
