Hah, I was ninja'd while commenting about scaling templates with a question about scaling templates! Priceless! :D
Honestly, it seems like a much better practice in general. One has to remember that going up a CR is the equivalent to a wizard gaining another level of spellcasting. When you go up 2 CRs you're in a whole new tier, and you're supposed to be worth two of what you were before. >_>
On a side note, you might want to be careful with certain animals. Putting that template on a tiger for example would be pretty horrifying since it allows it to Stealth without cover/concealment and a supernatural (IE - doesn't provoke) teleportation ability as a move action, which means that the tiger could be like...
Surprise round: "I'm a tiger, rawr!" -> PC-down
Round 1: "Bye!" ->Teleport->Stealth->sneak about.
1d4 rounds later: "I'm a tiger, rawer!" -> PC-down.
I don't know, two of those sound suitably fun for a level 5 party :).
