One cautionary note - unless you're spot-micing the cymbals (and even then, to an extent), then the electronic kit is going to bleed into your overheads, so you'll hear two things with each, say, tom or kick hit - the very dead, flat sound of the beater or stick on the electronic pad, and then the sound of the sample. Additionally, if there's any latency between the two it could potentially sound a bit funky.
In theory you're correct. However, having done a few times in real life, it's not a practical issue. So go for it.

As for the OH mics... how cheap is cheap?

I can delete the pad noises from the overhead mics accept for when I actually hit a cymbal or course, and I've got ways to control the snare from sounding too roomy on its own.
No need, it will not be an issue at all.

I know you're friends with the TTD guys. Talk to Marc about his recording set up, he can give you some pointers I think.
