I think you have made a good decision not to use sub-devices. As you say, the multiple arm slots can be grouped together on the controller as and when required.

What I would however recommend is that you use two adjacent slots for your "arm" control, and require unique but different values for the two slots. This limits the risk of a single fader controller bringing up the slots together and prematurely "arming" your system. You may also wish to ensure that the "arm" slot values are stable for a specific time before taking affect, which helps improve immunity to glitches on the dmx system when cables are plugged in and out.
