There's something your missing -- Healing can crit.
Another bright point for the Bird-clan is the fact that they have high physical and magical crit rates. By critting a heal, you end up saving some of your MP (more HP healed for MP spent) -- helping ease the pain of a low MP pool.
For soloing, these crits come to be very helpful, too. A crit can mean a 1-hit or a 2-hit, saving valuable MP for another target.
For the general, PvE healer, Bird-clan is a nice clan to chose for.
On the flip side, Taurus' higher HP makes them sturdier -- making them useful for mass-situations. Namely, GvG. They'll be able to withstand more attacks than the normal clothie-Healer Bird and Dragon.
Oh yeah, from my observations from when I was a Healer-main, the Heals are static.
