FCP X File naming on AVCHD import

I have an updated fairly easy workflow solution - any thoughts? :

1. FCP X import Canon files from card > file names are Clip #1 etc
2. Go to imported files in FCP X library > Original Media
3. Use Better Rename to rename them ( and lose the hashtag if you want to process copies through eg Episode with BITC)
4. Back in FCP X, Trash the imported files in the FCP X event just created
5. Drag the newly renamed files into the event

Now file shave sensible descriptive names and clients using the BITC viewing copies (mp4s) will advise edit points using files with the same names as those in FCP X - just as before.
