Pretty much.

I just checked a bunch of deets on the saber vs. steamrunner. For a loss of one turn point and one tier 2 sci ability you are getting: an extra tier 2 eng ability, 17-18% more shields, almost 4 thousand hp, and +150 crew.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
