Best practice for organizing feature doc in FCPx

I'm starting a feature doc and am wondering best practice for filing inside fcpx.

I've read conflicting advice as to whether to use a single event, or an event for each shoot day. Although keywords only work inside an event, I'm realizing smart collections can work across a library - but unfortunately you cannot put library-level smart collections into folders. For my project, I would be pulling clips from different shoot days and so would want keywords that can transcend events. I will likely have a lot of keywords.

I've read that using a single event can cause the program to slow as the clips increase in volume. Hence my desire to try multiple events.

Any thoughts/recommendations or templates on FCPx organizing for large projects?
