True 24fps vs 23.976 Timeline

Hi,

I'm editing a project in FCP7. Most of our footage was shot in True 24fps but we will most likely need a 23.976 sequence at the end of the day.

My question is this: is it better to edit the 24fps footage in a 24fps timeline and later have a post house convert this to 23.976? Or is it better to edit the 24fps footage inside a 23.976 timeline?

My gut tells me to edit in 24fps and have a post house convert to 23.976 but I'd like to hear the pros and cons of each case.

Thanks!
