I do not have answers for you. But if I were you, I would propose to revise your current business practice. If I remember correctly, SW has been trying to confirm to 7 standards. So, it is beneficial to follow one of the standards. If you are in US, you probably need to follow the following standard:
ASME Y14.35M-1997 (Revision of Engineering Drawings and Associated Documents)
I agree, you have no answers for me.
Brian, this will not answer all of your questions, but check this out (near the middle and end of the article): http://michaellord.me/category/solidworks-2/.
Let me ask you some questions:
What kind of revision tables do you usually use? (See sheet 1/Independent/same on all sheets)
For zones in the revision table, do you want the sheet number to appear and under which circumstances?

- Is there a way to link the placement of the symbol to the revision table? So when I create a revision and place the symbol, the zone is put into the table for each individual instance.
I believe this is now possible in Solidworks 2015.
For #1, have you tried adding revision symbols to layers and hinding those layers?
For #2, SOLIDWORKS 2015 does now link drawing zones of revision symbols with the revision table.
Here's what I found on the subject. It works quite nicely. It will remove the row you want gone, and leave the symbol.You can hide rows or columns in a table and you can display hidden rows.
- Click the table. The table toolbar appears.
- Click Hide/Show . The pointer changes to .
- Click row numbers to select rows to hide. ...
- Click column headings to select columns to hide.
- Click Hide/Show to hide the selected rows and columns.
