That seems like a lot of work to me.  I too don't add Jamin until I'm
done with the mix, but it's so simple to add an insert to it in the
master track.  Doesn't matter to me whether it's pre- or post-fader
since I leave the master channel at 0 dB - if it goes over, I've mixed

I know that I can stress my poor old P4 if I have too many channels with
fx and run Jamin, but when that happens I'll pay attention to my
sub-mixes.  No need to have 3-4 background vox channels each with their
own fx when I can throw on a mix bus and put the fx there (except
perhaps for some EQ).

Even with the idea of mastering only a single stereo track, I'd just
work off a snapshot in the same session where I've imported the track
and mute or hide the rest of the tracks, but that's mostly because
I'm a bit OCD about keeping my filesystems streamlined, and the 
multiple directories for a song would make me twitch :)
