Let me preface this by saying that I'm speaking from a purely competitive viewpoint.
Nope, I don't think that's what the designers intended but unfortunately that's what we got with the T'au index.
Look; I really REALLY wish there were options in the T'au index that I could take to a GT or a Major that would give me a hope of winning outside of Commanders, Coldstars, an Ethereal, and drones but there aren't.
If you're playing casual games sure, the other units are a ton of fun; but when you regularly go up against brimstone/changeling/magnus/aetos, conscript/artillery spam, daemon prince spam, malefic lord spam, guilliman gunlines, etc. there simply are no other options in the T'au index that would have a hope of beating that. For me the only one that has come close is Triple stormsurge/triple skyray but that's outperformed by Commanders as well.
