Should the Galaxy class be merged into one ship with a ton of console options?

I think this is how the stock Galaxy R should be:
Lt Cmdr. Engineer
4 Enginering console slots
3 Tactical console slots
3 Science console slots
Universal Saucer separation console
The Galaxy-X should be removed from the C-store as a ship and replaced with a "universal console pack" for the same or lower Cryptic point price:
"X-Type Equipment" - All universal consoles, as follows:
Phaser lance console: Adds phaser lance ability and cosmetic parts for the phaser lance and third nacelle.
Cloaking device console: Adds cloaking ability and cosmetic parts for the nacelle pylon winglets (call them the cloaking field generators)
Dual Heavy Cannon console: Adds ability to fit dual heavy cannons and cosmetic parts for the cannon mounts on the top of the saucer,
Venture refit should be left as-is.
So, if you had a Galaxy-R with all the universal consoles from the Gal-X and Venture, you'd be down by 5 console slots. Instead of 10 free consoles to play with, you'll only have 5. But, the useless saucer separation console will now become useful; pair it with dual heavy cannons for example.
Additionally it would be great if we would be able to use
Galaxy ship parts on the VA Galaxy and Nebula.
(including Envoy and Celestial. Some Parts would be really nice to have)
Live long and prosper.
