because mana isn't health, derp? more seriously. veigar uses his q to farm, not just poke. so he's using more mana passively.
karthus and swain both use significantly more mana than other AP mids. karthus being dps and swain's r with ramping mana consumption.

also, using champions that keep getting nerfed and banned (morg/ahri) doesn't really help your case.

Viktor cannot heal himself with any of his abilities and he has the lowest mana regeneration of any champion in the game.

Granting Power Transfer a healing effect essentially does what the shield already does, except it does not have a 3-second drop-off timer.
and it would be weaker, and it would be homogenizing champion abilities without cause, and it would cause balance problems.
