You do not need 30% crit unbuffed when you have particle acceleration/energize that already gives you auto-crit on your projects/shocks, combined with your set bonus of having 3 stacks of force potency/recklessness in DPS gear, you're better off putting that into power. The reason you take any accuracy at all, is because probably 30-50% of your attacks are going to consist of a combination of Double Strike/Thrash, Shadow Strike/Maul, and Spinning Strike/Assassinate, all of which are melee damage and require some accuracy.

Is 30% defense the cap? If so, how bad is the DR passed that?

Looked around, but couldn't exactly find a graph or a definitive answer. Only that the diminishing returns are "huge" and it declines "sharply" after 30%. If anyone can find a graph or something definitive, feel free to post it here.

This thread has been updated! The information that is no longer applicable has been removed and replaced with a wealth of new information that should help those shadows interested in tanking in PvP .

Quick note about the 17/29/0 spec is that because you are in Dark Charge, you do not gain the full effects of Induction. You do get the 30% surge boost to Maul, but not the Shock cost reduction. Your Shocks are still full cost, which makes Force management very difficult, the main reason I avoid the spec. Other than that, very good guide.
