The plus in working in ProREs instead of XDCAM is speed, and quality of any elements not shot XDCAM such as graphics and stills possibly. It will render a lot faster throughout the post process if you transcode the XDCAM up front. (at the cost of drive space of course)

You can export any sequence to the two codecs you list there, but preserving the 10 bit color in all other clips you add (except the XDCAM material which was recorded 8 bit) You need to edit in a ProRes sequence. If you don't transcode, you'll eventually have to render all of the XDCAM if you simply render it to ProRes. So... up to you.
