Simple.
You mean the Emergency Power to Foo abilities? Reducing the cooldown times by more than 33% is meaningless since that would get you down to the global cooldown minimum. Doing that would mean cruisers would be able to use a single copy of an Emergency Power ability as often as if they had two copies.

An interesting idea. Though I wonder how much this would really help when it comes to damage output. Emergency Power seems to have a very buggy relationship with weapon power drain. I don't think anybody is seriously complaining that cruisers aren't tough enough, rather the problem is their ability to kill things efficienty.
