It does have some credence, but the reality is that more Companies promote workers until they are clearly still doing a fantastic job, and then don't promote them further, as they can not be easily replaced.
Only when the Manager above is useless, or leaves, do those below get promoted, and usually only if they are able, and do not leave a void below.
I would suggest that the Pete Principle happens less often than competent workers being held back that can be promoted and perform.
Lack of perfomance usually relates to lack of training and support, and not due to lack of ability as well.
