This is the standard form of easing withdrawl from the shorter acting take longer acting ones to slow the exit of this type of medicine...a time honored practice and good sound medicine. If there are doctors prescribing Valium to get off of klonopin, they've either got it backwards, are just plain wrong (doctors are occasionally), or are trying to accomplish something else altogether - other than what is being described here.
