Plan ahead for scaling with (#SSP) global variable multiplier in every dimension?

If I know full well that I'm going to scale something, I could set a GV equal to 1 and add it as a multiplier in each and every dimension, from distance relation of a plane, to sketch dimensions, to blind extrude depth. Then, once the scale factor is determined, I could alter the variable and everything would embiggen appropriately.

 

Is my expectation delusional? Is there any drawback to this planned workflow? Clearly, attention would need paid in the initial definition of every distance. Does this either require or impact the use of a SSP, or would it empower the SSP method instead? Any experienced comments are welcome. Have you done this before?

 

I'm creating a very large thing from measurements of a very small thing, and trying to anticipate a workflow before I get in over my head and have to start over. Thanks.
