I remember there being some film that could benefit from a small amount of constant underexposure, but certainly not digital.
-2/3 EV for digital as a genera setting is just going to introduce lots of noise when you try to fix the underexposure in post processing.
If you are shooting JPG and want more contrast and saturation in the "just out of camera" JPGs, just set your camera to do that in the picture controls.
