Making associated hole feat in multiple parts

Hello;

    When dealing with alot of holes mating in various components, when I'm editing the assy., and creating these holes, i'm tempted to just make the holes for the second feature coincident, to the ones I have dimensioned in the first part. So I would omitt dims in the second part basically.  Will this cause trouble down the road, or is this really even a better way to set up mating holes in multiple parts in an assy? I thought it might create problems for someone not familar with the parts. They won't just have the dimensions to change if there's a need to edit the parts. These are generally just simple sketched holes not using the hole wizard. On the other hand obviously the design intent is for the holes always to mate.

 

Thks for any thoughts on this matter.
