i´d love to see a 4th spec or anyspec changed to a tanking spec, i´m playing my warlock for a good 7 years now, and i don´t care what changes happen, i love the class, i hate it to be a pure dps though...
The only real merit to a pure anything seems to be avoiding awkward social situations.
I can see it possible, but I would still back away and move to the back of the raid, so when people die.. I can run first.
"I don't have a healing UI/raid frames set up since I've played retribution off-spec." How is that awkward?
"I can try to do all of 20k DPS as WW since I just heal and don't know what Energy is." How is that awkward?
It also gives the raid designers more leeway to build increasingly diverse encounters. While this creates the exact opposite effect from what I just mentioned, the expectation that raids will require familiarity with multiple roles could encourage more players to learn alternative roles, and may even discover that they enjoy them.

Most raiders will play another role if needed for a single raid night, only when asked to switch long-term or permanently do they balk, but this is another story altogether.
