Its actually very effective if you dedicate performance to it.

My T5 Embassador runs dual boarding shuttle with 5 doffs that double shuttles per launch & give them weaponry.

Its real good to suddenly spawn 6 shuttles each popping away with a point defense turret (equivalent to the one you get from lockbox) and that when they arrive at target they DO shut down systems and kill crew.

AI NPCs seems to go wonky when their crew is dumped... for some reason elite tac cubes just stop firing and moving once I've landed shuttles, hit them with theta radiation+warp plasma. The only thing i can think of is the crew death.. for spheres do the same after Ive landed 4 shuttle attacks worth (24'ish shuttles...yes I tested it lol).
