    While this should be fine for most mechanical things, I am concerned with the idea of using edge geometry splits to achieve hard faces due to possible rigging/animation issues.  What I do  when working in blender is set auto smooth to default  in "object data" tab and then mark my edge selection seams in the leftmost "Shading" menu as "edges - sharp" or use the "faces - flat" features to set the smoothing.

    Remember, sometimes the model got weighted normals, seams from islands won't work, just enable auto smooth and your model is basically done.
