Except you are going about it bass ackwards. You shouldn't want to sit still in an escort because you will get hit and die. Not because running your engines at full throttle magically makes your cannons use less energy.
And the problem still is retarded AI. In PvP the problem is blobbing which wouldn't be solved by these changes, they would just encourage people to switch to beams instead.
Personally I think that in the end game content cannons are going to become unappealing very quickly because of the limited arc limiting spreading incoming damage over shield sectors.
