You can keep your opponent guessing just as much by designing new ships
each game, or by simply have a few different sets of stats to choose 
between for each of your models. Doing this does not cause any points
increases for human-tech ships - so why should it do so for

Keep in mind that the points system is designed as a tool to balance 
*one-off battles*. It is *not* designed for campaigns where fighters and

missiles have to be replaced once expended or human-tech ships might
take a 
long time to refit with new weapons, and can - depending on the exact 
campaign rules used - shift the game balance in unexpected ways if used 
without modifications in such campaigns.
