I can't see that touching the pos and neg battery cables together will do any harm...once they've been disconnected from the battery of course. After all, this could easily happen when you remove a battery anyway. the pos lead will dangle down onto the nearest (grounded) metal bit under the bonnet. I imagine all this does is ensure that all the electrical gizmos are completely discharged, having been grounded to the chassis. .
