In order to survive aggressive lanes bottom, it really helps to have a slight movespeed advantage so he doesn't just get bullied out of a lane immediately by an aggressive man bottom.
Also, many of our AP mids sit at 310 and 315 movespeed, being able to match their movespeeds in lane lets him trade comparably with many matchups, and hopefully opens up some new strategies with Varus going mid lane.
