You could arguably list EPS transfer as a heal, because when you send it to someone it usually has the effect of maxing their shield power, and possibly reactivating systems that have been hit by power drains. Also if the player is in a ship that doesn't typically cruise around at full aux, EPSPT improves their self heals for as long as it lasts.
But yeah, I definitely see your point.
I could make an argument for engineers being stronger healers because even though their heals are the same as any other class in the same ship, the engineer has a few 'selfish' heals they can use if they get int trouble while the others are on cooldown.
Honestly, engineers got screwed when the power drain from weapons was reworked -- before that, EPSPT and NI were major DPS buffs.
