Your theory about why it's balanced requires no fights to ever occur except 5vs5's in mid.
There's a word called "split push" you obviously never heard of. The odds of having an army of people ready to spam CC to stop the heal isn't that high.
If you were hoping someone like Soraka would use silence to do it? Well, odds are high that he used ult to kill her in 3 seconds long before the heal was even needed.
There's also a word called "strategy," seems you've never heard of it either.
AP Yi is a one trick pony. Alpha Strike then....... then.... then.... okay now I can Alpha Strike again.
Let's put your split pushing AP Yi, who can't knock down towers very well in the first place, against a defending.... let's say Riven, shall we?
Yi: ALPHA STRIKE!
Riven: Broken Wings.
Yi: Waiting for Alpha Strike. Might as well Meditate.
Riven: Ki Burst. Oh look... the Meditate is stopped.
Yi: Still waiting for Alpha Strike.... time to Highlander awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Failed back door attempt.
