You do lose form, but it's instant cast when you're ready to fly again, so it's not so bad.
The main bonus is, if in the process of picking an herb you aggro a nearby enemy, you can still often loot the herb and fly away. Not so with mining -- unless you're a night elf anyways.
If you're seeking a farming character, then insta-cast flight form with a 1.6 second gather time of mining nodes, and 0.5 second gather time of herb nodes, with Forager's Gloves is pretty amazing. The 1.5 second cast time to mount adds up when going from node to node, being instantly in the air headed towards the next node is extremely nice.
My Monk (90 now) can mine and fish in Zen flight - lvl 70... so I hop like a bee from one node to the other. Only drawback is minor because of what they call a "quick speed" which is about 1/2 of Master Riding speed. Make a Monk!
