The TOS Enterprise was destroyed in The Search For Spock. The ship in TFF and TUC was the Enterprise-A.

Unlike Voyager, it was in federation space so it should've been found.

I for one blame Iconians.

I think between those two reasons, starfleet probably would've built a new flagship and a new enterprise.
I agree with all of your statements (including blaming the Iconians :p), except for that having the Excelsior as a T5 ship throws that theory out of the window.
