Wet skimming a water change?

What do you guys think of this way of doing a water change?

I would say that wet skimming for a water change is really only time effective on a small tank. What's wrong with siphoning or pumping into buckets?

That was my thought as well. On a large tank, it would take days... it seems as if it could be a really cool idea IF you can automate it, and basically make it so it is constantly exchanging small volumes of water. It wouldn't be too tough to automate, but would take some money, and space.
