The reason BS didn't come up is because of the decreasing cost to armour/power ratio that units are subject to. They may be the second best fleet to have inactive though. Wlerin's recent point covers the rest of the details really well. They can also be shot effectively by more units I think, though this may not be entirely true... HC only have two realistic, viable ways to kill them, FR and CR imo. Mass levis, mass HC vs mdium HC, and HB are all moderately plausible alternatives, but have disadvantages.
iirc, IF+FT vs. naked HC isn't horrible either.
