This could be a really useful way to resolve disputes concerning children relatively quickly.  In my experience, it is often disputes concerning children that people are more passionate about than perhaps dividing assets, and parents can often become entrenched in their respective positions fairly quickly.  Whilst each parent may feel very strongly that their position is what's best for the child, one thing that is certain is that parental conflict is not in the best interests of the child.  It will be good to have another option to help families on separation.
