Looks good, well done.

We went that route last year. Of course, there were quite a few niggles we had to get around with scripts as Profiles don't have nearly the power in many areas that WGM did. But, with Apple starting to deprecate Managed Preferences we found there wasn't much choice once you get to 10.8 and higher. And, with some of the new Macs only able to run 10.9 you start to see the creakiness of trying to force Managed Preferences where Apple no longer wants them used. Can't say I agree with that decision, but that's the reality...

we migrated to 10.7 last year so its possible... Its not something I knew you could do.
Playing with various MDM solutions, Profiles cops up more and more so training is something I think I might need to bend work into paying for, especially if it can replace WGM and or OD.
Do you have any good links for the theory? and how robust is it?

Here is my home setup. You don't want to see what I have in school....
1st Picture (from left to right)
Netgear ReadyNas Duo - Backup for WD MyBookLive, General File storage, PC Backups and a small WebDav server. (2x 1TB drives in RAID)
WD MyBookLive - Media streaming - has everything incl Pictures, Videos and Music. (1x 1TB HDD)
Sonos - Music playing through the big Hifi system that all of the Servers are on.
Oh and the last picture is of all of the cables coming out of the SuperHub and to various places
And there are all of the CD's that are on the MyBookLive, all near 2000 of them.

Wow, this looks fantastic! What UPS's did you go for and how many are in your setup?

We use 4 x APC Smart-UPS rackmount UPS (link below) along with four battery extenders. Provides 3 hours up time for our network rack and 1 hour for our server/storage rack.
