Correct, shard > Vial, even past soft cap. As stated, expertise reduces parry haste, thus lowering the amount of damage you take.
Also, 142 hit cap is for bosses, which are usually immune to taunt, so not as many worries. Also, your DPS is not going to pull threat on a boss, they know better.
The hit cap for trash is about what, 92? And 40-50 hit is usually enough to ensure your taunts land when you need them too. Worse comes to worse, you charge/intervene and mocking blow, and even if that misses, your taunt should be back up again.
And the proc on the shard is awesome for TC/SW now when AoE tanking ^_^
