The concept of set gear should see you get an overall improvement.

So in my opinion, the original design was illogical.
Not sure that holds...

By itself the shield was not that powerful, although better than every other regenerative shield in game.
A regen shield has the advantage of being very sustainable once you overcome initial alpha spikes.
And once you have the set it becomes VERY VERY good at that.
Regen shields are the least popular, but they are one of three (four if you count standard shields) different valid playstyles.
