Technology evolves, ever consider some designs can only go so far and can't accept all these new technologies and would not function correctly? That maybe you can't load a ship to the teeth with 25th century tech without changing the ship...

So they can build a replica of a 250 year old ship...perhaps they can't push it further without modification thus not making it a NX class anymore.

While I understand what you mean, this argument fails because of the starships that *have* been allowed to go on to Tier-5.

My goodness, we have Tier-5 K'a'tingas and B'rels: TOS and TMP vessels, respectivley. If the Klinks can get a B'rel to run at Tier-5, and if the lovable feddies can run an Enterprise-era Tier-5 Vulcan Science Vessel, certainly a Tier-5 Miranda and Excalibur/Exeter would be very possible.
