Maybe more nacceles = faster "0 to warp"?
Just like more cylinders can mean faster 0 - 60 OR more towing horsepower, more nacelles can mean better acceleration, better top-end speed, better endurance at speed, or less maintenance per nacelle. It all depends on how it's designed.
And possibly the ability (given required downtime) of a multiple nacelle (Constellation) arrangement, to continue at warp speed on one set, while the other is down for repair or what ever they do to them. (just a cool down maybe ?)
