I'll be honest, I haven't really read much on this, am I right in thinking that "Post Formats" are akin to the page templates system?

Note that this method doesn't preclude your suggestions; rather, it just better abstracts the code. It all depends on how the method is implemented. :)

Clever. However, 90% of the time, I've just been using post_class()
 and stylesheet rules to change how post-formatted posts look.

 Nothing wrong with changing the code you use for different formats,
 but remember that ideally, you still want Google to be able to see the
 stuff you're not showing. The title, for example, you might not want
 to display for asides, but you probably still want Google to know it's
 there. So a .format-aside h2.title {display:none;} is a better way to
 "remove" things sometimes.
