Mixing 60i and PF24 sources on a 35mm IVTC project

Since the HV20 had this wonderful PF24 mode I've been going made looking for the best way to generate 3:2 pulldown to make progressive source files. Then I realize that my other camera is a 60i only device. So was there a point to converting to 23.976 fps before editing?

If there is, I haven't discovered it yet. The time spent doing pulldown could have been done editing. With mixed sources there will be a deinterlace and frame rate conversion to be done anyway. By mixing it together the final output won't have such a jarring difference between cameras. Is this right? I don't know.
