That's absolutely legit and a wise choice, just save as default settings and you're good to go.
BTW take into account that some plugins are not really "tied to an operating level".
I like to analyze the amount of saturation they add with a sine at -18dfbs and then i rise the level of the test signal until -3dbfs, just to know how much i can push them if i want to and how much they affect the sound at nominal level.
But that's just me.
