My take is that the Belt must have been originally settled with low thrust ion drives or something similar. So the large Belter fleet and perhaps even shipyards were not seen as much of a threat by Earth and Mars. When the torch drive was invented, the design got out, the Belters happily adopted it, and now they've got a grudge, access to far off places, and thousands of potential WMDs. Not happy times for the major powers.

As for the thermodynamics, just let it slide this time. No one should be chained to a radiator.
