My only issue with the Monk is the number of key binds compared to other tank classes. That may be where the "complexity" comes from.

12 Offensive abilities.
2 Movement abilities.
4 Healing abilities.
8 Defensive abilities.

I just run out of keys that I can reach in a timely manner.

I quit playing my Monk Mistweaver for the same reason. I was able to do a lot of shift key binds so that almost all the abilities I had to use regularly were under my left hand and combined with mouseover macros I was able to heal, but it never felt comfortable despite leveling as a Mistweaver, doing heroics and a fair amount of LFR.

Whenever I switched to my druid or priest healer it was just so much more enjoyable to heal. I will probably level this paladin and my old shaman healer before going back to Monk healing which mostly just made my hand tired...
