I agree with the question, but...

I don't agree with the RH one, since the split occurred before FTL and
the RH FTL ships were develped with AC/EU assistance per canon.  Because
Romanovs are related to the Windsors (yes, I know that's not the real
I see NAC as having some influence.  the NSL also since generally

I'd think some purchase would be involved with the IC as well.	Perhaps
or FSE.

I'd think there's plenty of purchase here with NAC, FSE, ESU, NSL all

Some self-design too, I'd think, for the Japanese.

My guess would be a mix of NAC or NSL, IF, and self-designs.
