Manual focus vs AutoFocus in video

Quite a few of you, particularly the profs and more sophisticated, seem to advocate manual focus over auto focus in video.

Can you tell me what's the biggest advance of manual focus?

And, how you address the situation that the subject move in and out of focus, like the subject is walking over you?

Doesn't that make the follow focus mechanism a necessary investment?
