That's how I use to play the cruisers when the game first launched. Have to admit that I don't run cruisers all that much any more.
If escorts weren't perfectly capable of doing the same thing as you just described that would be the way to play a cruiser. But Escorts can do that. And they can do it better because they have better firepower and the maneuverability to keep their guns on their target.
