Frame Rates and Audio

I have a project that I am exporting a few different tapes as masters for:

HDCAM-SR @1080/23.976psf
D-Beta 525 @ 29.97NDF
D-Beta PAL @ 25fps

I am using my SRW-5800 to crossplay the HDCAM-SR master to D-Beta for the PAL with the 4.1% speed increase and will also downconvert to NTSC.

I have to deliver master Audio files (2ch, ME) for my PAL version that syncs with my video. Should I just re-capture from the PAL tape, or can I take my current raw masters and apply a speed change? My concern with that is on an 85min feature, if my speed change isn't to the decimal, there could be sync issues. Also, if I take my HD sequence and drop the audio into a 29.97 timeline and export (with 29.97 used as my easy set up), will that be fine for the NTSC raw audio files?

Just wondering what everyone else is doing...
