Its because extra health doesn't matter for anything if you can't sustain it.
The resiliency of cruisers has to be in their damage resistance, so that you can outheal the damage dealt to you over the course of a sustained engagement.
Same goes for PvE in STFs - you might as well fly an escort if you aren't absolutely perfect in a cruiser. Extra damage is worth it if you're gonna die in 3 seconds anyway.
