Re: Size of starfleet?

If the members maintained individual fleets, why is it that all of starfleet's vessels were standardized and looked similar during the Dominion war?
It's like in the world today, only a few nations have the faciities to construct ships above a certain size. If a Federation Member wants a brand new destroyer or larger they have to contract through Earth or one of the few other major shipyards.

Also, when older starships are sold off (instead of being scrapped), the Membership without their own shipyards might have priority in bidding on these to add to their home fleets.
