so TL;DR

no
What about the TNG episode where Picard uses the phased cloak to get out of the Asteroid - that was not alternate timeline or a loan - it was being developed in secect by a group in starfleet to level the playing field - Adm (forget his name but remember the line) :"remove the advantage that the Klingons and Romulans have had over us for centuries"

Forget the phased cloak - give the Regent a rapid-fire quantum torpedo launcher instead.

Or better still - give it a Janeway console; sends the target to a distant quadrant and creates a lame excuse for not facilitating a quick return.

yes , said guy was promptly arrested and full details of the cloak were presented to the romulans

it was illegal and they only used it to escape after the romulans ' accidentally ' trapped the enterprise inside the asteroid

But we already phase right through asteroids in STO. A phased cloak is standard equipment these days and kicks in when your ensign helmsman gets sloppy.

Those same thousands would buy the ship if it came with an e-bunny rabbit instead of a console.

what % or revenue come from KDF? - Im talking revenue - not the 16% of player base stat - its probably like 5%

I think selling a billion Regents would FAR outweigh and revenue lost from the KDF side
I know why you're suggesting it. I'm just saying there will be opposition from the KDF, because they're losing a unique aspect.

And how do you know that many people want the Feds to have a battle cloak? What says they want one in the first place?

Why a phasing cloak anyway ?
theres enough debateable things in this game as is
not to mention every T5 ship console the federation has , does something that the SHIP OWNING IT has used on screen

when have we seen a phasing sovereign class ?
