I think they have what's called a shared cooldown if you try to use say.. Grav Well I with Grav Well 2 in the same toolbar. That particular skill is called a "2/3" skill because Grav Well has a 60 second cooldown and will put a 40 second (2/3rds) cooldown on the other grav well when you use it. Then there are other skills like Energy Siphon that also have a 1 minute cooldown, where you can use both I and II version but in this case it puts a 30 second cooldown on the other siphon, this is a "1/2" skill.

The same confusing thing happens on the purple deflector doff who is supposed to cut both of these skills CDs down to half 25% of the time -- he only ever cuts Grav Well down to 40 seconds, not 30, because of the nature of its shared 2/3 cooldown. He will however cut Energy Siphon (so I've read) down to 30 seconds because that skill is a "1/2" skill.

Basically no Doff will ever drop cooldowns below their shared cooldown limit. Hope this helps.
