I'm thinking I would do this if my attack/defense technologies outstripped the abilities of my smaller ships.

Yes you may.
The most common reason would be to add ships to already existing groups, but you can also do it to keep the technologies you have a secret from your opponent a bit longer.
EDIT: To specifically address your example; you can still build scouts/DDs when you have attack or defense 2 researched, but they can use at most level 1. You still have the option of giving them level 0 instead, but it's rare that you don't want your ships using the best techs available.
