I have to question as to how using the method somehow makes one think of ISO first. Its always the last result, after exposure is maximized, regardless of ones understanding of exposure.

The order depends on the understanding of the exposure. Most shooters I saw set ISO at some value before allowing the camera to use A, S, but mostly P.

I agree. I have come across "teachers" of photography actually advocating this approach. IMO this dates back to the old film approach, where you had first choose the film you are using and then for that roll, you were more or less stuck with that.

I am not that against using the "ISO" setting, but I do agree that you should only up the ISO setting when you hit the limits of what you can do with T or A (Mind you, most cameras give access to T and A more directly than the ISO setting and hence fine tuning is mostly done via either of these. Also a lot of textbooks suggest using the exposure time for bracketing)
