The bottom line:

Mouse-over healing is faster than click-to-cast healing. It always has been, and always will be. Clicking is not more of a challenge, it doesn't add depth or complexity, and the fundamentals of healing are exactly the same-- all it is is slower and more awkward. If you feel like you're a pro because you don't use mouse-over healing, all you're doing is gimping your raid.

Mouse-over healing frees up loads of potential hot keys for other abilities, which in turn makes your CC's, interrupts, snares, etc more easily accessible again benefiting your raid group.

Mouse-over healing allows you to DPS more freely as a healer than you would otherwise. If a tank is taking significant damage, you're not going to deselect him/her to target the boss. It just won't happen.

If you disagree, you're either A: Playing Devil's Advocate just because or B: You've never used mouse-over healing before.
