Lately around COM's I've seen this method being mentioned more and more.
I like the idea, however, I've found after reading up about it a little, that I've been doing it the whole time!
While I've got nothing against this method at all, I do wonder if it's just worded in a way that appeals to parents more these days. Calling them "consequences" instead of "punishments" seems to make parents feel better about what they're doing.
I've always tended to "make the punishment fit the crime" so to speak.
Also, I've noticed that Timeouts are becoming frowned upon. Surely though sometimes taking your child away from a situation is the most logical consequence.
