Nope. Only Thieves, Warriors, Mesmers and Rangers. Mesmers can grant quickness in a large area.
And sure, forcing players to cope with terrible and unbalanced mechanics makes for a great eSport.
So half the classes in the game are able to do it?
It sounds fine, honestly.
(Even though you're wrong: Every class in the game can do it)

Pretty ironic considering how long a thief can stay hidden after being downded, or how easily they can escape from a fight they are about to lose.
A Thief can stay hidden after being downed for 2s, with Smoke Bomb - and can shadowstep 600 yards away to avoid a Stomp.
A Thief has so many escapes because they have a Medium armor class and Low health pool - with most of their viable weapon options being melee-oriented. Their strength is the ability to pick their fights. Their weakness is being forced to fight on their opponent's terms.
Just putting some facts here, since you seem to be in fantasy-land.
