Yeah, for sure. Would be a good way to measure PSU efficiency.
I turned to the Zalman unit as while a Kill-a-Watt would give total system numbers, those numbers have very little relation to what the board is actually using, due to things liek fans and drive, and other goodies.. With one of the largest differences in boards being PWM design, I think it's a good reference point as is, but I'm always exploring new options that will bring you guys better, more accurate data.
The one thing about 24-pin connectors is that they also power PCIe too, so wouldn't really give usuable numbers on it's own, in my opinion. You might be surprised how little power gets sucked through the 6-pins of my 5870.
