If you think about uptime you'd realize that if escorts really had to turn and do strafing runs their spike and innate DPS would have to 4 or 5 times what it is now, maybe even more. That just leads to an arms race between cruisers and needing ever higher defenses to survive such attacks and NPCs needing higher damaging powers to get thru those defenses... it becomes a scaling nightmare.
