Frankly, I like the cumulative respawn timer as it allows me to heal escorts/tanky cruisers without feeling like it's a completely pointless waste of time. Nobody cares if they die if it takes all of 5 seconds or so to get back in the fight. I'd consider your example as just an example of your team playing poorly.
Lockboxes can die in a fire, of course.
