If the procedure you documented works for your environment then by all means use it. However I should note that patching multiple systems to the same baseline is not natively support within smpatch.
If you're willing to switch to a different tool: PCA handles baseline patching just fine:
It uses Sun's patchdiag.xref file as the patch information database, and you can simply feed any past version of that file into PCA using its "--xrefdir" and "--nocheckxref" options.
