According to the dev blog, these are the developer corporations of the new tech 2 ships:

Electronic Attack Ships
Sentinel (Hull: Crucifier / Viziam)
Kitsune (Hull: Griffin / Lai Dai)
Keres (Hull: Maulus / Duvolle Labs)
Hyena (Hull: Vigil / Core Complexion)

Heavy Interdictors
Devoter (Hull: Maller / Viziam)
Onyx (Hull: Caracal / Kaalakiota)
Phobos (Hull: Thorax / Roden Shipyards)
Broadsword (Hull: Rupture / Core Complexion)

Black Ops
Redeemer (Hull: Armageddon / Viziam)
Widow (Hull: Scorpion / Kaalakiota)
Sin (Hull: Dominix / CreoDreon)
Panther (Hull: Typhoon / Thukker Mix)

Marauders
Paladin (Hull: Apocalpyse / Carthum Conglomerate)
Golem (Hull: Raven / Lai Dai)
Kronos (Hull: Megathron / Duvolle Labs)
Vargur (Hull: Tempest / Boundless Creations)

Now, basically, each of the factions has three different tech 2 ship developer corporations. In the case of the Gallente and the Minmatar, the new ships are nicely spread out: Duvolle Labs gets 2, and CreoDreon and Roden Shipyards one each. Core Complexion gets 2, and Thukker Mix and Boundless Creation one each. However, for the new Amarr ships, Viziam gets 3, Carthum Conglomerate one, and Khanid Innovation none at all. Similarly, for the Caldari, Lai Dai and Kaalakiota get 2 each, and Ishukone gets none.

For the sake of having a bit more variety, and a bit more balance in the "Amarr vs. Khanid" and "Lai Dai vs. Ishukone" competitions, I suggest spreading things out a bit more. I have some additional suggestions as well, here they are in summary:

- The Gallente Electronic Attack ship, the Keres, is supposed to be built by Duvolle Labs. However, Duvolle already builds the Gallente Stealth Bomber, the Nemesis (the Covert Ops, the Helios, is built by CreoDreon). Therefore, why not give the Keres to Roden Shipyards? That way, all Gallente shipbuilding corps have one "electronics" type ship.

- Lai Dai is supposedly building the Caldari Electronic Attack ship, the Kitsune. But they are also already building the Caldari Stealth Bomber, the Manticore. My suggestion: the Kitsune should be built by Kaalakiota.

- Viziam is supposedly building the Amarr Electronic Attack ship, the Sentinel. But they are already building the Amarr Stealth Bomber, the Purifier. My suggestion: the Sentinel should be built by Carthum Conglomerate.

- Viziam is supposedly building the Amarr Heavy Interdictor, the Devoter, based on a Maller template. But they are already building one of the Amarr Heavy Cruisers, the Zealot. My suggestion: the Devoter should be built by Carthum Conglomerate.

- One of the Caldari tech 2 battleships should be built by Ishukone. My suggestion: the Widow.

- One of the Amarr tech 2 battleships should be built by Khanid Innovation. My suggestion: the Paladin.

As a result, we would have this scheme, which is more even and, in my opinion, more interesting:

Electronic Attack Ships
Sentinel (Hull: Crucifier / Carthum Conglomerate)
Kitsune (Hull: Griffin / Kaalakiota)
Keres (Hull: Maulus / Roden Shipyards)
Hyena (Hull: Vigil / Core Complexion)

Heavy Interdictors
Devoter (Hull: Maller / Carthum Conglomerate)
Onyx (Hull: Caracal / Kaalakiota)
Phobos (Hull: Thorax / Roden Shipyards)
Broadsword (Hull: Rupture / Core Complexion)

Black Ops
Redeemer (Hull: Armageddon / Viziam)
Widow (Hull: Scorpion / Ishukone)
Sin (Hull: Dominix / CreoDreon)
Panther (Hull: Typhoon / Thukker Mix)

Marauders
Paladin (Hull: Apocalpyse / Khanid Innovation)
Golem (Hull: Raven / Lai Dai)
Kronos (Hull: Megathron / Duvolle Labs)
Vargur (Hull: Tempest / Boundless Creations)

I like your idea. I can only speak for amarr but imo paladin should be khanid and sentinel too. Sentinel appears to look like an anathema and should thus be khanid, also its the predecessor of the curse which is khanid too of course. It would all make sense.

Unfortunately a dev has already responded to the question in another thread. The ship designers will not change. I am too lazy to dig it up, but its in this forum.

They had the ships already in the database and maybe wanted to save some time. I am not sure why as they probably have to make new models for rev3 anyway, but meh. There goes my dream of a khanid apoc. :(

However i am pretty sure they will only tweak minor issues now. They're probably just too busy.

Turning the Paladin into a torp-boat would be...interesting.
