If you aren't going to make much use of it, and you are going to keep casting smite/penance/holy fire and maintain the evangelism buff, it might in some situations be better to effectively waste the CD.
I'd agree that just sitting on it can be worth while, but are you really just going to sit there and mindlessly spam Smite/HF for 30 seconds straight under the guise of 'maintaining evangelism'... you can easily maintain with just HF. there are plenty of opportunities to prepare the raid for an AOE with DA/SShell bubbles at the very least. So it really is more of a situation of using AA smartly instead of just "I HAVE 5 STACKS... AA!"
