With Fleet Shipyards coming in Season 6 and Cryptic's tendency to release T5 refits like the new T5 Akira, your point is kind of moot. Sure it is technically not an upgrade, but trading in for a better model. However, people can use an RP reason like they sent their ship to the Utopia Planitia for a couple of weeks or months and their old ship was upgraded.
My guess is that T5 ships from the Fleet Shipyards will have updated stats and refits will have updated stats and extra abilities compared to the originals. After all, paying $25 for a ship should give something extra like an extra skin and ability or two. As far as any ship to Tier 5, we will have to wait and see.
