Just a general remark. A real-world Starfleet would have many more officers at all levels than any navy in history. There would be many more formations and assignments.

If today's naval ranks were handed down to such an organization, me, I'd expect new ranks to pop up in between older ranks, including if not especially above captain, as a direct result of this increase in complexity. Fleet captain and commodore could both fit that bill.
Whose to say "Fleet Captain" isn't a rank above Commodore?
Personally, I like to think a fleet captain is a grade between captain and commodore with the rank insignia being three full stripes.
