Yes, that's much more effective than a juji from O-soto.
Realistically, most O-sotogaris will end up with you going down with your opponent and landing more or less on top of him. The kata gatame transition requires much less movement and flows much more smoothly from o-soto.

This is just a SD technique. If you look at Niniomiya's books/videos you'll see arm bars and triangle chokes.
