If the model elements suffer rebirth, renewal and other REs could ref planes take their place and how should RPs be implemented?

I don't believe you need many reference planes at all.  Most reference planes that I use are only temporary.  Many objects in Revit can be replaced with similar objects without loss of dimensions if you dimension correctly.

So if I was to replace say a rectangle of walls all dimensioned of a grid and replaced those walls A with another set of walls B by changing the family that is fine.

However we are to experience the hiding of walls A with worksets/filters and then another set of walls B will appear via a link. Likely this link will be dead revit model that will be churned with another dead link structural model periodically.  I do not know why this is happening, however I guess the lives of the many revit users are outweighing the few.

You wrote ",,,Likely this link will be dead revit model that will be churned with another dead link structural model periodically. " << Not sure what you mean here.  This is like Prego ...It's in there!  There are no ghosts in Revit.  If you see it then its in there, linked or otherwise.
