Personally i have been moving because i want the bonus...but if it makes no big difference, then i can stand still.
A lot of those guys have narrow firing arc weapons, so if they move then they need to periodlically retreat/reorient which causes damage output to drop off considerably. So, those guys park.
If you have Beam Arrays, no reason whatsoever to not stay moving.
