Your post is very deep and detailed but I have to say that while what you say is largely accurate the premise is still unfortunately not valid.
Mines are the worst weapons in the game. The reason? They are destroyable, have too short a range, do not reliably hit bare shield facings, take too long to arm, and deal less damage than their Torpedo Counterparts.
I mean besides novelty they really offer very little. They deal mediocre damage due to often hitting shields which suck down their damage massively, they are difficult to get onto the target to begin with, and even as Crowd Control things like Theta Vents or Warp Plasma is far more effective and lethal.
