Who's gonna protect you from the insane bursts of Operatives and PTs then ? Maybe adjust skanks but don't outright "kill" them.

If anything, devs should buff the other tanks to the level of juggs and buffs the other dps to the level of PTs and ops (buffs across the board, not just damage) Now that would be interesting.
it's a problem when the most effective build for a spec is to pick up the set pieces intended for not only a different spec but an entirely different role. that said, I don't think tanks running around with dps set pieces has ever been a problem in pvp. the problem was certain dps classes being able to fill the role of tank effectively -- mostly a solo rated issue as it makes matchmaking by role (the 1st priority of matchmaking) too complicated for the system.

a dps running around WZs swapping guard with high endurance or a tank smashing with dps gear has always been inconsequential b/c WZs never had finite role matching, nor is such a thing really possible when mixing groups of 2-4 with solos.
