The only issue I have with the vertical design is the warp nacelles don't look "vertical", they give the appearance of being adapted from the previous version - unless that was the artist's intent.
The warp engines are rotated 90 to match the wings and maintain the same relation with each other. Warp engine systems in Gene Roddenberry's universe are co-dependent.

As far as their looking like the standard Warbird engines,... a small private airplane has a propeller that looks very much like the propeller on a V-22 Osprey because they preform the same function (basically).
