I agree that this is another way of carrying out a repair (when this method is appropriate), but it is very risky. I would add that it is vital to keep the paper wet, and to inspect the area you are working on every few rubs (dry the panel off to check this). Otherwise you may go clean through a coat, and it will require a larger (spray booth) repair. I've seen this done to someone's car (then they called me to repair it)...
