most burst is avoidable (brand, morg, etc.), or exposes the user to counterattack (jax jump, almost any caster's cone ability, etc.). and flat out nukes dont come with lifesteal outside of ww and vlad (who has been nerfed repeatedly). even fid is short ranged and has to sit there channeling.
the survivability champs you listed otherwise deal minimal damage themselves, but work to negate burst. of course, healing is usually situationally worse than killing people.
