And now we get to the cons, the "oops, it's in a spot that means before they get to me they go back to @!**@##*#* the healer".
I'd like to be able to charge/intervene over there and cleave if everything else is on CD. It's just too easy to catch a warrior out now, much easier than it's ever been in the past.

This is why taking things out of context is a bad idea. Technically you're right, unfortunately, you've avoided anything resembling a response to my actual point.
Technically, strafing left is proactive as well since it means I'm a smidgen closer to the healer in case they pull threat off of me. Yet something tells me no one would really consider that proactive in any real sense of the word.
OTOH, DK resources is such that if a DK isn't paying attention, they can easily find themselves with no runes up, little to no RP, and a bad situation on hand. It's a lot easier for a DK to find themselves having to wait before they can salvage a bad situation.
So they must think ahead, the DK tanking style is slower and more strategic. Warriors don't give a !@#$, we'll react when the situation happens.
