@matt - This thinking works fine for DPS, and even healers, but it's terrible for tanks. When there's only two of you, it becomes painfully obvious when you are undergeared. Undergeared healers and DPS will sit at the bottom of the charts and at best annoy other raiders; undergeared tanks cause wipes and get kicked. I can gear my subpar healers & DPS by running current content, but my subpar tank has to go back a couple tiers to make sure she doesn't get squished. This is especially frustrating with how they've lumped all the heroics together; my ilevel from my DPS gear might get me into timerics, but that doesn't mean I'm ready to tank them. If it weren't for being able to roll on tank gear while in DPS spec, I'd probably never tank at all - the bar is just too steep.
