How to manage Global Variables in Assemblies ?

I have been reading many posts about managing GV's (Global Variables) in Assemblies, but have not found a clear solution which is robust (reliable), fast rebuilding and easy to apply.

In my case I want to use it in SSP (Skeleton Sketch Part) Assembly type.

I have read about linking a GV to an external file, but this seems a bit clumsy to me.

Solidworks allows you to push and pull a GV from almost anywhere in the model (Feature tree), in- or out of context, which actually seems an invitation to circular rebuilds and or slow rebuilds.

So far my I decided to push the GV's according to this picture;

All of the GV's are defined in the SSP-part, and from there they can be pushed to equations in all other Parts, Sub-Assemblies and the Main-top-level-Assembly.

It seems to work fine so far.

lease let me know your ideas about this.
