that is the key though if you can afford it
also move speed is no joke it wins games far more then people want to admit
everytime your on a,b,c slow character and can't escape a gank or can't target the carry in a team fight cause your to slow you are hurting the team
finaly on jungle yi the movespeed will realy help with ganks and completely dominating the map when your top and run clear bot after you see a teamfight break out that movespeed might get your there in time to do something instead of just in time to save your tower after 2or more teamates died
yi and pantheon have the fastest starting speed if you learn to abuse it with the correct items it realy makes a difference especialy since they slowed down alot of the ranged carries
I'm pretty much thinking along these same lines, yet you got downvoted.
as far as the zeals/pds are concerned
Movespeed helps with superior map control, if I want to hop between lanes I can, if I need to dart accross the map quickly to cleanup a teamfight I can. Highlander is not always up and it's not always enough. Not to mention it does give attack speed and crit chance both increase DPS especially on master yi.

Yi has one of the best movespeed/attackspeed steroids in the game. You shouldn't have trouble catching people for ganks coming out of the jungle with both buffs (or at the very least, lizard).
All the attack damage in the world won't help you if you can't get to the enemy's carry, if you can't stick to the enemy's carry or getaway whenever necessary, or to cleanup a teamfight when you're on the otherside of the map. Highlander may not always be available not to mention you want to use highlander towards the start of the fight not on the way to the fight from accross the map.
Also in between wriggle's damage, and Yi's attack damage steroid we're looking at well over a bf sword's worth of damage, some nice crit and attack speed to go with it isn't bad.
