Personally i like the dps attacking what i am attacking.. it makes it harder for them to pull off me ( they still do though ... no one bothers to drop threat during trash )

To make it easier for them use either verbal calls or marks .. for example bind flame on a easy key and mark your current kill target with it .. when it drops mark something else ..etc..

If the DPS start whacking random targets they'd better be geared enough to take the damage.. especially so in random LFG groups.

In actual ops I don't even try to tank trash anymore as no one bothers to follow any type of a kill order and to be fair trash in the new instances is so much easier than in EV and KP ( especially in 16 man )
Well, let's see, let me know which parts of this I misread.

1: DPS should attack the tank's target.

I disagree, I think they should kill the normals and strongs first, while the tank should focus on holding champions and elites first.

2: Using marks and verbal calls:

I guess I don't completely disagree with this, but it's way more effort than any FP is worth and I never find the need to waste the time doing it. However, as you are using this to facilitate having dps attack your current target, going to have to say I disagree here too.

3: Whacking random targets:

It sounds as though you are complaining about them attacking things you are not tanking. I say, let them kill the normals and strongs while you take the elites.

4: Trash in newer ops is easier than old.

Disagree. Other than the packs around fabricator droid in KP, trash in the KP/EV tier, while long, was/is easy.

5: Trash is easier on 16man.

I feel that the opposite is the case.
