Most of the time a USB port is to run a diagnostic or flash a device not always is it for adding devices or drives unless stated by the manufacturer.
What I meant by reliable is it not supported by Apple and if you run into problems they will not be much help that being said I ran a 1TB drive connected to an Airport Extreme Base Station for years but not trouble free occasionally it required using Finder to disconnect and reconnect I have not experienced that problem using a NAS or Time Capsule.
