I suspect the "expert" may have misunderstood what you are doing - which is to release the AF-ON button once you have achieved focus on the desired subject. If you were to keep the AF-ON button pressed, then the camera would re-focus as you re-compose and you would indeed get unfocused shots. I agree with you that changing the selected focus point can be too slow for action shooting.

As the others said, if it's working for you, why change?
