Having options doesn't necessarily mean you can always use them. Just because Ret has two other viable specs doesn't mean it can just switch specs and gear and tank or heal a raid. You can't do that without displacing somebody else in your raid. Your entire comp would need restructuring. Not to mention that even if you can tank or heal at a competent level and have the gear for it, 99% of the time you won't be as skilled as the actual tank or the healer that have made that role their main, nor as geared, so it's not always in the best interests of a progression-minded raid for you to just steal someone's job.
