You could say this is already in game thanks to Tractor Beam Repulsors, I can't see it being much of a problem to have another version that brings ships closer to you.
It is such a shame this game doesn't have collidable objects, imagine the fun you would have in PvP pushing ships into asteroids, or dragging them next to a cube about to explode.
