The only downside to doing this is that the headlights then become more prone to future scratches/ chips / yellowing, and you just have to polish them again every other year thereafter. oh well.
I've used that procedure successfully on several cars.

There's also a $20 kit at Wal-Mart that does just this, and pretty well for a kit. You do need to put in the elbow grease with the sandpaper. Otherwise you won't get the yellow out.
