Pretty much spot on. One thing I'd like to emphasize more is that the range used for calculating threat is taken from the center of a mob, while the range used for calculating ability usage is taken from the outer ring of the mobs hitbox. It's entirely possible to be within "melee range" of the boss and still staying in the "ranged" range for threat, especially on a large boss like Thrasher. The range meter shown in game shows the range from the outer hitbox, or ability range. This is not always possible for tanks, particularly on small bosses, but melee DPS should almost always be standing near max range for their abilities so that they're always within the 130% zone.
