No tank wants this. Except by your statements maybe you. How would you feel if each class had the differences your talking about and the class you play is the one that is not "way better at it", what if they were the worst and what if that applied to almost every boss encounter.

Right now the classes are close to having the same capabilities. It's hard to make them to different or you have 1-2 that reign supreme over the others. Conversely you can't make them too alike or we just end up being the same class with different ability names slapped on the actions.
It's a hard balance, I give the Dev's credit for trying the best they can to make us all good at what our role is while trying to keep us unique.
There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.
