I think the truth is somewhere in between.
They wanted to throw a bone to cruiser captains, but not without giving something for their beloved escorts.
In the end no one benefits from it, since the gap between Low turning and high turning ships hasn't changed (or has become even worse).

Thank you for reading or ignoring, depending on who you are.
It helps to justify the 3rd ensign engineering slot because it widens the variety of powers I'm likely to use in my Lt. slots; having other powers there means I'm more likely to have EPtX or Engineering Team in my Ensign slots, rather than in my Lt. slots.

I guess that, rather than 'justify the 3rd ensign slot', what I meant was that this opens up new possibilities for interesting builds on the larger cruisers.
