I HATE ship buffs. Mainly because they are the biggest time sink in the entire game. Every time I join or start a group I have to wait atleast 5 extra minutes per quest because people HAVE to run and get their buffs. What really ticks me off is when people feel they must buff when running content way over level, or when doing simple farming quests. EE I understand, but everything else including most heroic elite...come on really?.
I understand the ship has sailed for getting rid of them completely, so I'd compromise for an all in one ship buff shrine. That atleast would speed things up, and often the ship needs to be used to get to quests so it would help a lot with all the dead time.
