I just don't agree with the concept of transwarp beaming because it totally undermines starship travel to the point that it may no longer be necessary!
If transwarp beaming were depicted as essentially risk-free and completely practical for large-scale use, then that might be a worthwhile objection. Has it been shown to be so?
Well its 2 attempts and 2 successes so far in 2 movies. Comics/Novels don't count. Seems to be ok so far!
They beamed Scotty into a tank which nearly killed him.

The second time they did it they beamed Spock and Kirk onto the Narada's bridge.

The Dominion and S31 appeared to have this technology in DS9, but it was conveniently dropped for plot reasons.
