8-Man Group Composition

I'm curious as to what group composition is needed for operations content (how many tanks, how many healers, how many DPS) in order to plan an Operations roster.

Can someone who has experienced the content weigh in? I was planning on basing the roster around a group comp of 2 tanks, 4 DPS, and 2 heals per run (plus 1 additional member per role for group coverage due to absences). Would that approach work? Is the 8-man content based around a different group assumption (such as single-tank)? Does it vary greatly per encounter?

We will be exploring all the normal mode content, and hopefully push into hard mode content afterwards.

You don't need more than 1 tank for any of the 8-man content. Or even most of the 16-man content. Some of it doesn't require a tank at all. (Bonethrasher, Council)

1 Tank, 5 DPS, 2 Heals seems to work for most of the encounters. We've gone without a tank, or with just one healer on some encounters.
