SOE ships special role bonus

The bonus:
Allow activation of AB / MWD module while cloacked (with emphasis on MWD).

Reasoning:
I get the feeling that those ships were meant for exploration in hostile space. They are expensive and due to this fact it may not at all encourage people to venture to 0.0 where they can get popped by interceptors with drones out when landed on a gate camp with bubbles.
This role bonus would make them nearly invincible since pilot would be able to escape quickly from last known position and avoid being caught.

"Are you stupid? WTF?":
This smells like a room for some exploitation so maybe their combat capabilities can get significantly reduced?

Anyways the idea popped to my head and it did not sound overtly insane Pirate More like a very brave move.
You have any ideas what could come out of the Pandora box that this idea would open?

"make them nearly invincible"

This is a bad thing. WHy do you think its a good thing?

They are excellent for exploring in hostile space. They do not need to be buffed to be good at this.

Also, you must not be very experienced in nullsec travel, because you ALREADY CAN use 1 full cycle of afterburner or mwd after you initiate cloak. This would just make them better on sneaking up on people and surprise-sexing them.

Never forget.

No logical reason to allow this on SoE ships and no other cloakies with exploration capabilities(like actual Cov Ops ships).

They are far from being excellent. They look good tho and are fun to fly.

Bubble immunity would suit better but that would need much weaker pvp capabilities.

My EFT-fu says they're awesome, especially considering the possibilities opened up by cargobay + depot. T2 stuff won't cut it though for the harder content stuff.
