And the reality is that both versions of the Connie are in STO; which means they obviously weren't completely withdrawn from service. I have no good explanation for this either; hence 'rationalize'.

If we are reaching for explanations, we may as well go ahead and say something like 'advances in technology since the Constitution refit have made the refit itself redundant; allowing for previously obsolete designs to be upgraded to modern standards without going to the trouble of rebuilding the ship from the keel up'. Since we don't really have a good reason to assume that this couldn't possibly be the case.
