That's pretty much how I interpret it, too.
To survive an alpha strike in any PvP situation, you need Covariant with [cap]x2. The only way regenerative comes into play is if you have ample Boff Skills that can withstand the alpha strike. Then, you get 10 - 30 seconds of cool down time before the next strike. Regen may be beneficial during that time because you will gain more shield strength while the abilities are on cooldown. Hopefully that means you will be recharged and ready to go for the 2nd strike.
But, don't shields only regenerate after a certain amount of time of not taking any damage?
