Seconded. When I'm a tank, I consider it my responsibility to know everything about a situation so I can educate if needed. Is there anything to be cleansed? What hits the hardest? What can be interrupted? Where should people stand? When do I need to use cooldowns, and when might I need to stun/mass taunt/etc to keep things on me when otherwise they might beeline for the DPS?

It might just be me, but if I'm a tank, I feel the responsibility to ensure a good run, so I try to know absolutely everything about the encounter mechanics, at least, while still allowing various tactics to defeat these mechanics to be tried.
