You're actually correct in that it wouldn't put a low tier ship on par with a high tier one but it would expand them somewhat.

An example:

http://www.stowiki.org/Cruiser_%28Federation%29

You have 4 console slots in the Federation cruiser: 1 tac, 2 eng, 1 sci
You have 4 BO stations: 1 of each Ensign and one Lt Eng

You use BO power booster consoles in each slot. That allows for you to now use the following powers: 1 of each at Lt and one Lt Cmdr Eng.

Alternatively you have 4 weapon mounts in a Fed Cruiser: 2 front and 2 rear.

Using console slots to increase the number of weapons (if the devs make them universal): then you can have 4 more weapons. Etc.
