When are we going to get a Federation Cloaking Device?

I don't think the Federation should have Cloak.
I do think Mask Energy Signature needs to become more useful. I think what would fit the Federation better might be to have it useable to appear as a different (enemy) ship. If you can't beat the "Stealth" of the MES, you see a non-hostile/allied ship. All othe rlimitations could still apply.
I remember that there have been Startrek episodes where they used to mask their warp signature to appear to be a different ship on long range sensors.
They could also rename the skill "Holographic Shield Emitter" or something like if they want to change the explanation how it works.
