It seems logical and realistic to be able to rechristen a ship that you've bought somewhere else or taken from someone else in battle. Perhaps it could be a feature in AoP. Perhaps it should be costly enough that we would really have to consider whether it was worth it, to take the good ship before us now or wait until we can find the right one in our own ports. I do really like the idea of the flag your flying being very important and determining enemy actions.
For me, military rank, as it got higher, increased my payout for doing commissions from the nation that I have a rank in. Other than that, if you sail in waters controlled by the nation you have a rank in, you have no need to fear a warship belonging to the nation you are ranked in, no longer needing to stop for inspection.
