I'll do it if I have a high mana regen item. Sure, they might just heal it back before they get into combat, but they might also be down 100+ HP when they fight too, and I've survived fights with less then 100 HP.
Other then that, its the annoying factor. I'll usually "pick on" one player with my random snipes, hoping to piss them off or bait them into mines/gang fights. Usually it doesnt work, but occasionally it does. Either way I dont see a problem with it*.
*This is usually late game, when I am running back to a crystal, or my gear is going to completely regen that in no time.
