That can work fairly well but it doesn't take into account downtime in encounters for any reason. In fact that's a common complaint about some of the TPS ranking sites that have ridiculously low tps numbers for fights like Yog due time not spent on the boss.

Even the old Kel'Thuzzad fight was kind of low...or Heigan..

Hard to get reliable numbers there.

Well, back in Naxx for some Patchwerk record, I was using TankadinTps and it was working pretty well, pausing if no dmg etc.

but at the moment, I personally don't need to see my threat in numbers, I see I have enough threat for hard modes, so I don't see what it would bring to me that i don't already know . I'm more concern about dmg taken at the moment, trying to see how I stand out between the other tanks.
While tanking new content, one rule is important -- it's not about taking less damage; it's about being able to take more.

This. My job is not to put out maximum sustained TPS. My job is to keep threat over the DPS and healers, which requires that I survive the fight.

As long as I am not threat-capping everyone, then survival is of the utmost importance.
