Hi Danny,

My understanding was that a branch reflects a project's development
stream.
What you are attempting to do is implement a development
structure/dependency in a version control system.

IMHO, your strategy will work, but I believe it could turn into a
maintenance nightmare as each developer starts creating their own
variation of branches containing combination of version from other
projects, to make matters worse couple this with merging.

Thanks
