EPtA does restore aux, I just checked. I didn't check if using other aux boostsers after using EPtA to restore are effective, but I would speculate they would.

Also, even if it didn't that drawback is in regards to the Boff ability not the Doff ability. The only opportunity cost of the doffs is other doffs. But, why use other doffs which reduce select Boff cooldowns if you can use Aux2batt and reduce all Boff cooldowns?

Also, what can't Aux2Sif and Aux2Batt be rolled one after the other?

Maybe it's b/c I don't use key binds, but I don't see anything but upside to using this ability and a big one at that.

Edit: I used aux2batt, then epta aux boosted, then aux bat, which did work to max aux ...
