And he's also assuming they're all heavy cruisers like the Enterprise rather than a mix of classes. I reject that simply because it takes a small and simplistic view of Starfleet's makeup.
Exactly. I also think it can be possible for a ship to have multiple classifications. For instance:

  • Starfleet Vessels
    • Star Ship Class
      • Cruiser Class
        • Heavy Cruiser Class
          • Constitution Class
          • Achernar Class
          • Bonhomme Richard Class
          • Tikopai Class
          • Enterprise Class
          • Excelsior Class
        • Light Cruiser Class
          • Miranda Class
      • Scout Class
        • Hermes Class
        • Oberth Class
      • Destroyer Class
        • Saladin Class
      • Dreadnaught Class
        • Federation Class
    • Space Ship Class
      • Servey Class
        • Antares Class
        • Beagle Class
      • Tug Class
        • Minnow Class
Those are just off the top of my head, but it show how
  1. The Enterprise could be Star Ship Class, Heavy Cruiser Class and Constitution Class all at the same time.
  2. All of the ships on the chart could be Star Ship and not all be Constitution Class Starships.
