[David Busse] "Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems FCP X doesn't really lend itself to this style of editing. "

Wrong. In X you can work exactly the same as you have in Premiere Pro. Your A-roll goes on the primary storyline and B-roll as connected clips above. Key difference is that the default is to include audio, so you'll have to manage that or do picture-only B-roll edits. For multiple sequences, simply "duplicate as snapshot" for the new version.

You can use the metadata as needed. For example, you can use keywords to sort clips according to topics and categories. If you change timeline modes, you can turn off the "magnetism". When you do that, you can pull unused clips to the end and it will generate a gap clip in between. So you can go between timeline modes depending on what you want to do at any given time.
