Seems like that's the way to go since the W nerfs, and all of the Ezreals I've seen in the tournament have done it. If you miss your W (and it's actually kind of hard to hit against a mobile enemy now since the nerf) you completely lose the fight. Q provides more sustained damage and allows for easy ranged last hitting and strong poke. It also costs virtually no mana now.

And the base scaling on Q is ****. You're getting extra damage on it from the items you're building anyways. You also have to have a clear path to poke with it. It's weak as hell poke if the enemy is mobile as you're assuming because if they're as mobile as you are you're not going to land Q either. W you can still land as poke because it has 900 range and passes through minions so when anyone goes to last hit you can launch it then and they either take the W or back off and miss the last hit. Either way it's benefiting you in some way. Also if you're going in for a kill knowing you're going to land all your skill shots having W maxed instead of Q is going to make that kill happen more easily in lane.
