Interesting thought. I use events as broad organizational bins (one per Camera/shoot day, Graphics, Audio, Sequences, etc...) then subcategorize using keywords within each event to sift and sort that media into more organized, logical groups.

For example, I always have an event called AUDIO with keywords for MUSIC, VO, SFX, FINAL MIX. I like that I can click the event to see every audio file in the project, or click a keyword to instantly filter to just music, VO, etc (which is why I want to assign a role to a keyword to it's applied to every clip in that keyword). But you could replicate that organization in FCPX if there were folders at the library level, if clicking a folder would show you every clip in it (like an event). Then you could toss out events and not really lose anything.
