The designs of the skill trees and the skills you get for points in a tree are skewed towards all the best abilities are at the top of the tree, making any sort of class building pretty much worthless.
Had they turned the skill trees into something a bit flatter, with more selections at the start like this
a better way to have done the skill tree is something like this
A A A
AA A AA
AA A AA
Flatten it out a bit, restrict it level to 1 or 2 abilities and 1 from the top. This would allow people to really combine different souls together to form something unique. Rather than Forcing you to absolutely focus in 1 soul to get the best skills from it.
You're statements are kinda misleading. A "rouge" is a very general expression.
In this game a rouge can DPS, heal, tank or cc. How in the world does making a rouge spec into a tank tree make it stop being a rouge? Are rouges only allowed to tank?
A friend of mine has tanked with he rouge dozens of times, and she's also had points into CC or dmg or so forth.
And I'm a pally/warlord with neither trees maxed atm, (both have 29 sps a piece) and I can tank awesome in that role. If I switch to my beastmaster do I stop being a warrior?
Same goes for a chloromancer. If my mage wants to heal during an instance, how is it that he is no longer a mage?
Just remember, no matter what any developer does, there will ALWAYS be a way to min/max skills/trees/items etc to be the "best." Example, everyone on my server who is a warrior is running around dpsing in warfronts as a riftblade. I'm a champagon. (Champion/paragon) and I rape. Soon, my class will be the most played, and then we will consistently have "flavor of the month" builds. It's inevitable.
But you're statement that a rouge tank isn't a rouge is ridiculous.
Last point, my build neither maxes either of my main trees as I pull many abilities from each tree. I am ALWAYS top DPS in warfronts unless I get cc'd a crapton.
