I feel like the other escorts are different enough that this shouldn't impact them too much but I'm not the numbers guy. I'll concede that this could create some issues.
The only comment I can really make to this is that there are other escort options avaiable at that teir. The "Refit" classes contained a uniqe ability of each of its main Canon ships. The Defiant could cloak, the Enterprise saucer seperated, and Voyager was able to deploy Ablative armor (all-be-it only in Endgame). If you do not like the cloak perk that comes with the Defiant, maybe you would enjoy the Multi-vector Advanced Escort. The one thing I looked foward to was getting my cloaked Defiant, DS9 being my fav Star Trek.

The Intrepid's Ablative are isn't removable, and there is no way to fuse Galaxy's saucer section.
