Sounds good. I've ripped around the same amount of CD's as you, also in 
Ogg. As you say, RB struggles with stability and gets very slow when 
dealing with this amount of tracks. What your proposing sounds like a 
good approach. I'm interested to know though whether after encoding 
(let's say using Ogg for the sake of arguament) it would be possibe to 
split this single file into individual tracks so that other media plyers 
could read them?
