Default ELI5: Automation Items

Would one of you kindly explain to me like i'm five, what are "automation items" and what benefit does this feature bring versus the previous method, which i guess was envelopes and lanes?

AIs are containers for envelope data, which you can loop and stretch and pool like regular items.

It makes moving/copying/pasting automation data easier.
But it has issues too, if you dont need them, dont use them.
As an example, Copying/pooling to have automation sent to multiple locations is horrible.
While the copying/pooling is a great great idea, using it as a way to send automation to multiple locations just means that something like an EDM build up where you could have the same automation sent to 40-50 parameters, 40-50 lanes of automation instead of one, pretty easy to work out which is better.

I guess I'll need a video, because I don't understand this paragraph.
