There are many roads to arrive at the same destination.

It's pretty common. I work with a DP who likes all of our kinos kept half-and-half. That gets through most situations and if he wants full output warmer or cooler than tubes are swapped out.
Known round this part of the world as a "mixed grill"
Gimme a 4' quad chequebook with a mixed grill

I don't like to do that because I often turn off one tube or turn it back on to control the output level, so if one or two of the tubes are a different color, then the overall color changes if I have three tubes on versus four tubes on.
Im with David.
You have more control when all your tubes are the same.
After you know the amount of light you need you can always change texture or color using gels.. if you know you are going to use gels, just keep in mind that you need the kino's a little brighter since the gell will take out some of the light.
