Yeah, that's what I've decided.
I was going to adjust the specs a bit. The Cruzer is extremely sluggish and slow in the current incarnation, and the Hornet has too much cargo space (its hull design would leave no room for 20t). I also don't think there should be 15t of extra cargo space option for any of them (the Cruzer's 200t doesn't need it, and the other two wouldn't have space for 15t).
I was also going to adjust the NPC roles to match the ships Norby mentioned, although I'd appreciate any feedback on these role changes. Here's what I have:
trader(0.25) trader-courier(0.05) ace_ship1 ace_ships
pirate-heavy-freighter(0.2) ace_ship1 ace_ships ace_ships
trader(0.375) trader-courier(0.1) trader-smuggler(0.35) hunter-medium(0.2) pirate-heavy-fighter pirate-interceptor(0.15) pirate-aegis-raider(0.1) scavenger(0.5) sunskim-trader(0.5) ace_ship2 ace_ships

Edit: I've uploaded these to the Wiki and download manager now. I've added a wiki page dedicated to the ships, and added a little bit of a back story. http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Ace_Ships
