It strikes me that if taken to the extreme it could seriously outbalance
the Sa'Vasku. Why worry about damage to your sandcrab when you can have
three broodmothers well out of the fighting feeding you snacks to keep
you going.. I'd say only ships that can launch drones should have the
ability to re-absorb drones.
