I think you're asking for trouble Brett, I would use blocks. Xref are good for maps or background reference to an existing drawing or to simply refer it to an active drawing It also helps in keeping the file size down in the active drawing. But you have your ways and work flow.
My experiences are that once you start using the xref as an active object you really need to keep track of its history and whom ever is or has worked on the xref. If it's only you it's a little easier to track but can still start to get confusing. You could "bind" the xref keeping the master untouched > it becomes a block
