Damping turns is probably a lot harder for the inertial damper tech to deal with than linear acceleration (and warp field dynamics may play a strong part of it).
As for banking, I imagine that it could be an effort to cut down on needed space in the RCS quads. Depending on where the maneuver thrusters are located, it's possible to have them use larger thrusters for two rotation axes and use smaller ones for the third... based on where the quads are located on the Sovereign's saucer section, roll and pitch could be controlled by the same thrusters, and then to augment yaw turns, you use roll and pitch.
