And make no mistake, BoP pilots sacrifice stats to get the battlecloak. They're also sacrificing to get the universal boffslots (which are useful, but aren't as awesome as they used to be due to universal boffslots being put on other ships). If they just wanted a cloak, they could fly a Fleet raptor, which outperforms the BoP in direct escort-to-escort fighting due to higher hull and shield mod, an extra weapon slot, and so on. Would Defiant pilots really be willing to give up something to get a battlecloak, something of only situational use?
yeah... instead of giving the battlecloak to the defiant, give it to the aquarius, it's the closest thing to a BoP on the fed side
