From a casual glance without any other sources, I would think to myself that I would use SoT for single target DPS, SoI for self healing and SoR for AoE DPS. The only reason I WOULDN'T is because in the past outside sources have told me that SoT was so far ahead in personal threat and DPS (and in a way HoPo gen thanks to the glyph) that that was not the case. If I'm not used to using outside sources, I'm probably seal swapping. Tanks thinking SoI was good for survivability were very commonplace. I remember having the arguments on a daily basis.
This has not changed. In fact, the lines that dictate "best tank seal" have been blurred even further to give the players - you guessed it - more options. When I say overstating, I mean the fact that you're referring to SoI as the tanking seal. All the blues have said is that SoI was used for "maximum survivability". Technically, this was always true, minus SoT glyph.
