Actually Wedge, while those ships were warships indeed there were quite a number in the hands of civilians used as escorts against space pirates. Shipping companies had their own security detail.
Of course i'm definitely asking for more units, and an increase in the units cap (option?) for those who can handle it on their computers. I think it would definitely liven up the gameplay if you had your battles but nearby you had other ships doing their own thing e.g running away, passing through the system, docking at civilian stations if you guys catch my drift.
