What World of Warcraft role is in most need of an overhaul?

One of the oldest and most preserved paradigms in World of Warcraft is one it inherited from its predecessors like Ultima Online or EverQuest -- the idea of certain classes being good at one of three primary roles. Tanking, or the art of getting the ire of the various monsters in dungeons focused on you instead of the tasty healer in cloth booties; Healing, the aforementioned person in cloth booties who can channel some form of magic to heal the wounds of their fellow adventurers; and DPS, short for damage per second, a metric that tells you how much damage these players are capable of dealing in a second while fighting said monsters.
