Most point-and-shoots offer movie recording in standard def only, video out is composite rather than component, operation is one-button dead-simple, they're sized to fit in a shirt pocket.

For me it's mostly about having a second camera so the wife can shoot pictures while I'm shooting video with the Flip SD Video camera. And if my kids are using the Flip I don't worry much.
It's not about video quality much. I suppose the small size of the Flip videos compared to my Canon point and shoot is a bonus too. The Flip has a bit better low light ability too. And yeah the operation is even simpler than a point and shoot.
You could also view getting a cheap video camera as a second set of batteries and memory.

Is this just wrong? Please let me know on this.

This is quite incorrect. Neither Final Cut Pro nor Final Cut Express natively supports H.264 as a production format. The only H.264 they support are when used as a codec in the AVCHD wrapper and the material is converted to the Apple Intermediate Codec or ProRes on ingest. In no way do the pro apps support this codec for production natively.

Regrettably, no. Pocket camcorders like the Zi6 and Mino don't let you shoot tethered to your Mac.
