It is a good addition to anonymous functions from php 5.3.

There is an option from php 5.4 to not retain the named class object accessing its method on instantiation, e.g.

echo (new namedClass)->returnProperty('myProp');

I think closures where certainly the stepping stone that helped get anonymous classes voted in.

I do use the syntax you show for instantiating a named class in the next article on nested anonymous classes since they are nested within a named class. The article is currently in queue so it should be published soon.

Of course, your example is still instantiating a named class, where an anonymous class is instantiated and defined at the same time.
