Both Combat and Watchman have talents that cause key abilities to proc autocrits; when significant amounts of the spec's damage comes from auto-crit procs, that tends to favor Power over Critical Rating. If I were to follow your suggestion and increase my Critical Rating by 175-200 points by trading Power, my average damage would go down by almost 1%.
I'll change that, really what you want to shoot for is around 30% crit from Rating and Strength, around 35% with the Smuggler buff, and I haven't actually looked at ratings since I made a stat-weights thread (on my guild forums) back in like... May...
