And let's not forget that one of the key benefits of a MILC over a point-and-shoot is, as the eponymous name suggests, the ability to change out your lenses. This is HUGE. Not only is the lens just as important (and in some cases, even more so) than the camera body and sensor itself, but also provides the ability to take DSLR-quality images because of the focal lengths, different depths-of-field and ability to shoot in ultra low-light conditions depending on your camera's T/F-stop (extremely helpful and necessary if your camera is able to shoot faster than 24fps, aka slo-mo).
On the note of video, some lenses additionally provide auto-stabilization technology, which is very helpful if/when shooting video.
To me, if it's a choice between point-and-shoot and MILC, then it's MILC, no question about it.
