One thing that is very debatable in your arguement, and the reason you don't see him supporting often... is that Maokai generally does need gold to be effective. He just doesn't scale with abilities as well and other support-tanks. Alistar or Leona can go straight into mid game at the 30 minute mark with nothing in their inventories but Tier 2 boots, a Ruby Sightstone and Shurelya's Reverie, and a little bonus MP5 and they are still the devastating, teamfight swaying, CC power houses they always are. Maokai needs a hefty chunk of HP as well as some well rounded defensive stats and a lot of mana regen to work in a fight. Sure he's a viable support, he just isn't as good as other tanks at scaling without solid gold income.
