I just trash the MXF files once I have everything imported into FCP7 and verified. I much prefer having sensibly named, self contained QuickTime files over a directory of cryptically named P2 directories. You aren't transcoding anything so it doesn't take very long, and there isn't any loss of quality. The only negative I can think of is that if you are using a P2CMS database or any special meta-data, that might be lost. I sort/catalog all my clips in FCP so this isn't an issue in my workflow.
