I really think, before making any role easier, Blizzard should have made it easier to just switch roles.For example, a DPS or Healer that wishes to start tanking needs to get a new set of gear, something that is daunting. If it was possible to somehow just translate the gear progression from the character's main role to any other roles the player might want to try, this might result in way higher numbers of players attempting the roles that are needed.The way it is currently, a player can't really supply a needed role quickly, due to the need of specialized (and often gated) gear, unless he has been planning for it for a long time. As it's too much of a hassle even attempting it, I believe most players that would be willing to try tanking or healing give up before even starting.Also, another thing I would really like is some kind of solo training ground for raid roles, including tanking. Pick all the skills and tricks the player is likely to need for a given role and drill the player in them. Also, make it a well rewarding daily (to get players to actually train often), make it so that the best the player perform the faster the quest ends (so they get added incentive to become good in it), but allow players to just repeat the drill part, after doing the quest, as often as they want just to train.
