The reason this will never happen: Escort-only power-gamers will derail any threads suggesting this with their incessant whinging about how terrible their life is, how OP cruisers and science ships are, how escorts are the only ships in the game that need DPS and the ability to turn, that escorts need to tank like cruisers, etc.

In short, the escort is king corn on turd hill right now, and none of its fans want that to change.
