Warrior or DK Tanking? (Situational)

(Disregarding all posts concerning Druids and Paladins)
Which tanking style is more effective, and which seems to be more fun fun? Im worried that DK (Frost specifically) tanking might not cut in later on and may just be a fun spec. I know everything there really is to Prot Warrior's style, so im mostly asking about you DKs out there. How is it, and how will it be with the oncoming buffs/nerfs?
Mostly basing this on 5 Man / Raid criteria, however I would like to know if either hold up well in PvP.
The upcoming changes are a mixed bag of buffs/nerfs. They're basically making DK tanking less spiky.
Unholy will still tank fine. A DK with Epic gear should (theorycrafting here) be able to push 55-60% avoidance, 65% to 70% with Blade Barrier, and with 5 charges to Bone shield that will still mitigate 20% damage for quite a long while.
Well, as pretty decently heroic geared DK, I push 50% avoidance with Blade Barrier up. If I had the choice between a DK or warrior tank I would look at the instance. For a magic-heavy, medicore damage, instance like HoL, I'd grab a DK. For the more hard-hitting fights, a warrior.
