Then we're in agreement.
My Tac/Cruiser has no issues with only 6 ranks of threat, but even then I'd take APD for the synergy with teammate's APB (my friends always pack APB).
My Eng/Cruiser sometimes struggles with what you describe, even with 9 ranks of threat. I've been pushed to the least survivable, most offense focused layout for an ody I can come up with just to remedy it.
So yes, I would very much prefer to have at least 1 BOFF skill with threat generation, and I think APD is an excellent candidate.
I just don't feel it's wise to allow one player to increase the threat of another player.
I'd much rather see 1 player able to increase their threat, with another player having something of a placate/threat reducing power to draw on.
