As for naming a starship directly after Kirk himself when there's still an Enterprise in the spacelanes...am I the only reader who finds that slightly off somehow?
Enterprise captains include Archer, April (perhaps), Pike, Kirk, Decker (technically), Spock, Harriman, Sulu, Garrett, and Picard. Kirk is not uniquely identified with that ship name, so I don't see the problem.
There was a USS Archer in Nemesis, and both Decker and Pike have had ships named after them in the non-canon but official materials.
Plus, one of Kirk's most famous acts of heroism occurred without any starship Enterprise -- saving Earth from the Whale Probe while serving as captain of the hijacked H.M.S. Bounty/I.K.S. Qel'Poh.
