Well yes. Everything can fail. In fact I'm more than interested now to 
try this. It might not work properly, as you say.

It might take certain practice to wipe off the right amount of putty, 
that's true. I guess that a) the amount of putty should be just a thin 
"string" over the rib and b) pushing it over the groove with a wet 
finger might be with just enough pressure to stick the putty over the 
plastic yet no to carry it off the surface. I guess it would take some 
practice to get it right and some cleaning up after. Gee, it's the same 
with many other modelling skills.

I usually clog the panel lines with sanding dust., then I paint 
forgetting that the model is clogged up.
