You seem to have missed the part where the OP said that everyone agreed upon giving up the pocket watch if it dropped. Many, many raiding guilds defer loot to tanks, simply because the tank is the backbone of the group. If the tank selflessly passes gear to other classes all the time, the raid isn't going to progress very far. It is in the best interest of the entire raid to make sure that the main tank has the best gear possible. It's not selfish; it's practical. This isn't a PUG where you might never see your group again - this is your guild and you're investing in your own progress.
I think you made a ridiculous comparison by equating two hunters in Ramparts with two druids of different specs in Kara. Apples and Oranges.
