Please elaborate, because nothing in this paragraph makes sense to me, and I like to think I'm pretty in-tune with theorycrafting. Especially the underlined parts.

Conversely, especially in 5 mans or 10 mans were your options for interrupts may be limited, it is a good idea to have ways to get to the melee yellow hit cap (8%) if you are doing a fight that REQUIRES interrupts to not fail. Now these fights are few and far between, so I wouldn't say that 8% hit is required in your main set of gear, but just know that you may need to get 8% for specific fights. And if you have two melee DPS with 10 sec interrupts, then... whatever, this probably wouldn't be an issue, though I am a bigger fan of a tank interrupting than causing the DPS to do less dmg b/c of banking energy or whatever for interrupts. The faster things die, the less time there is for something to go wrong.
For threat stats you want to have a healthy amount of expertise. 26 is ideal but don't panic or kill your survivability reforging for it. With current gear its easy to hit about 20 before you even get into raids (I'd highly reccommend the crafted chest for this, it has a boatload of expertise) the only time expertise is a big factor is on the pull. It's not unheard of to get an unlucky Parry on your 1st shield slam or revenge, just make sure you let your DPSers know to give you a second or 2 and to make sure to keep an eye on omen. Hit rating you don't need to worry about. I currently have 1 or 2 pieces of hit and rarely miss in interrupt fights or taunts. I do still miss from time to time however so if you feel its extremely important you can reforge for it however anything beyond 8% is a waste.
