Drum machine set up for looping rack

Hello loopers,
In setting up my rack, I plan to use a sterio drum machine. A Dr-5 to be 
specific. I am thinking of panning all drums either full right or left 
within the drum machine.  The outputs I plan to go into a crossfade pedal 
and then into their respective channels on the mixer.

With this setup I should be able to have a separate drum track on left and 
right, but able to blend from one rythem to another and back again with 
their own individual effect chained in.  At the mixer the inputs can be 
center panned back or have a LFO control the pan. Has anyone done anything 
like this?  Does it seem to anybody else that this could be a neat way to 
blend rythem changes?  The Dr-5 also has "fill to variation and fill to 
original" options that would allow multipule "rythem pairs" to be used in 
one song.  Should I or shouldn't I, that is the question. :-)
