As much as I would like to see a Federation carrier... I really dont see it being an escort class ship.

Besides, this isnt just the akira we're talking about, it's also the oslo (norway) and zephyr (steamrunner) classes.
True, but when the ship was originally designed out-of-continuity, it was intended to be a carrier, hence the linked shuttlebays on the front and back of the saucer. As for the other two ships that you can make that type of Escort be in the game... I dunno.
