Placate/confuse targets, then cloak.

I'm aware it doesn't address the cannon concerns, but game play wise cloaking under fire has to be a bit risky. Imagine if hitting that cloak button was a complete get out of jail free card, opponents would literally have 15 second windows to kill you.
As somebody who's tested Romulans on Tribble, I will tell you this: Higher-tier Romulan ships already funtion like that.

You see, the opponents LITERALLY have 15 second windows to breach the shields and deal considerable damage to a D'Deridex or Ha'apax before it cloaks, at which point complete destruction from 100% hull to 0% is impossible without some SERIOUS damage output (hitting some odd 20-30k DPS for a couple of seconds, for example)
Oh, lovely, I can't even requote the Douglas Adams quote I used to have here I WANT IT BACK!!!!
