You are perfectly right
Obviously they thought something when they designed the Kelvin.

They even needn't to think of the NX or any intermediate steps.
They just had to take the Enterprise as basis with the one question determining Kelvin's design: How do we make a ship that looks cool, but also older and smaller than the Enterprise and that won't steal the Enterprise's show?

And so they made quite a simple design, but still special enough to get our attention.

That Kelvin's a charming wee ship. That lower nacelle is huge, far large than the engineering section. But with a glowing orange Bussard collector, for the sake of authenticity
I already feel bad, knowing that shes going to take a pounding and possibly be destroyed early on in the movie

I read that somewhere also!

But the site itself is quite nice, I actually now that I've seen slightly more of the Kelvin, don't think it looks quite as ugly as that original view suggested. I can indeed see it fitting into the design lineage just fine.
