IF you limit "exotics" to long cooldowns or diminishing returns the fight becomes a one-shot fest. Atm RSP is used to protect against the massive DPS that 5 ships focusing on you (especially if they have 2 escorts or more) bring. You cannot heal that, not against a competent team. RSP is there to make them switch target - that's basically the gist of it.

The others are also used to spice up PvP a bit. Without them the game would be dreadfully boring - even if they were on too long cooldowns. Having to think about counters and your own special abilities all the time is what makes PvP interesting - not the fact that you press spacebar more often and get to fight it out for 30 more minutes per match.
