Scaling +Def wouldn't be in the same ballpark as what Geko wanted to do with DHCs...and the uproar that ensued.

Besides, they already changed EM to work in that fashion...

...it would be a logical step for them to take. Much of +Def works that way. The scaling +45% based on speed up to 24 impulse, the +10% Escort only if moving, the 2pc Aegis +5% only if moving, the APO +Def is based on that scaling +45% (a .45/.55 modifier applied to the tooltip bonus dependent on speed/Escort)...etc, etc, etc.

KDF BoPs do.

Rom Warbirds don't.
