So will this help with Google and the other SE's,
Iíve never seen this before can any one explain the benefits if any or better still the pitfalls for doing this.
I don't think SE pay any attention to the title tag
Thinking is good, testing is better! There are some factors that are very difficult/near impossible to test, others are easier. This one's pretty easy to test. Give it a try, you may start to enjoy testing, and then you'll get a more firm grasp on what factors matter, how much they matter and what to do when things change.
In the past a few SEO companies used this in external backlinks and I believe it worked for a while but I think that there is no ranking benefit at all these days.
