That's from the DS9 Technical Manual. The warhead is the last-ditch weapon to use when the ship is going down in flames, basically. So yeah, it's a bit of a stretch to call it a separable section; it's kind of the opposite of the usual lifeboat role of a separable saucer.
Yes, that is what I had in mind. However, I wasn't aware it was a warhead specifically - I thought it was a lifeboat and that it had been repurposed ad-hoc in Avatar.
