Another factor pushing for separate class stats for the Sh'raan is its top speed. The Suurok was described in "Breaking the Ice" as having a top speed of Warp 6.5, but T'Pol claims that the Sh'raan is capable of Warp 7. While it's possible that the Vulcans were a little reticent about their ship's true capabilities, I generally take statements like this at face unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise.
The Sh'raan is far more powerful than Enterprise; Enterprise itself was apparently considerably outclassed by the three Mazarite ships pursuing her, but the Sh'raan was enough of a threat that the Mizarians didn't even contemplate forcing a fight. Although to be fair, it is possible that the Mizarian ships were not so much directly intimidated by the Sh'Raan itself as by the thought of Vulcan reprisals if they did succeed in an attack.
We do not have a canonical class name for this class, so my usual practice of using the name of the first ship seen stands until something more official comes along.
