The "scaling back" is a dubious proposition considering all the OTHER shit Starfleet has to deal with, especially by the 2360s when the Cardassians have been lurking around for decades already.
Random monster in TOS typically took 1 or 2 ships to take care of (like "The Doomsday Machine", "The Immunity Syndrome", "TMP"). The Whale Probe in "TVH" overpowered them all but that was still before "TUC". But if it it only takes 2 ships to handle a monster every two years then all Starfleet needs is have 4 ships patrolling for them and build 4 replacement ships every year

The newer ships built during/after the Khitomer accords are considerably more powerful, both tactically and systematically, than the pre-khitomer vessels they replaced.
Yet, some older ships that stuck around after the Khitomer Accords like the USS Repulse and USS Trial were kept upgraded to be just as powerful as their newer classmates. While other ships were retired but we don't really know why.
