What kind of time-nut question is that?  :)

Try it and see.   Maybe you will find something interesting where you/we 
didn't expect it.

If you assume the Rb is stable, you should be able to watch the long term drift of the OCXO.  How many low digits can you get out of the 5335A?

Do you have an GPSDO to add to the mix?  That would let you calibrate the Rb.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
