Agree with both of these completely.
I actually really like Exile w/ Page Piper and almost exclusively playing your breakers out of archives (Test Run, Clone Chip, Scavenge w/ 3x Femme, Lady, Cypher.) It's a cool alternative draw engine and it's a ton of fun to play, but there is literally no competitive reason to play it over Kate.
I actually don't even know if 17 would do it. It draws comparisons to Custom Biotics vs ETF; making money while you do other things is worth more than simply importing better money cards, because the ability itself mitigates the need for more money cards.
Kate's ID is built in, efficient econ. I would like to say Exile's ID could be the same for card draw, but it's difficult to picture.
