Well yes, in that case I think his Officers might do well to be a little more flexible in their gear distribution, especially where tier tokens are concerned. Without wishing to get too much off-topic, this is one of the reasons I came to dislike EP/GP - while initially it seemed a good and fair way of doing things (and I'd actually recommend it for a guild that isn't focussed on bleeding edge progression), it inherently sees no difference between your MT and the raggedy DPS tagalong who comes to all the raids but never quite performs as well as the others in his class.

A zero sum system isn't automatically better but it does tend to organically favour tanks in the long term simply because tank loot rarely goes for more than the minimum, save the occasional amazing yet incredibly rare drop.
