I think this all boils down to this. You have stated from the beginning that you do not have the experience that most of these tanks that you are arguing with have. Heck, I dont even have the experience that some of them have. Yet you still try to 'prove' to everyone that you have 'shown with mathmatical reasoning' that you are right and they are wrong.
Perhaps you should try to actually put what others have said to use. You seem to ignore the fact stated when people say "We have different trinkets for different fights" and continue to slam hard on your 'theory'.
In my oppinion, you're no more than the typical rogue that comes to the warrior forums on the world of warcraft webpage that tries to tell people how to tank when they've never played a tanking class in their life.
The thing about most of the theories on this webpage.. They were actually PROVEN through practice. They were not just spouted off by someone who could not even give realistic proof short of numbers. If you don't want to wear the Commendation because you feel it is wasted, then don't wear it. That is your option as a tank. I do alot of things as a tank that others may find to be unorthodox, but I still do them and I can justify why I do them. It works for me, why should anyone try to tell me differently because some rogue came up to me and tells me "I've never tanked before, and I've never seen past Karazhan, but this theory says you shouldn't do that so lol at you!" Do you honestly think I will change my ways? No, what usually ends up happening, is I calmly explain to the person why I do what I do, explain to them in full detail, and make them look like a complete idiot infront of everyone standing around me. I have done it to both tanks and dps and healers alike.
