I haven't been able to find any proof that this is the even the case and I would rather not have to perform a xfs_repair on the filesystem if I don't have to (less manual messing with a filesystem seems like it would be best on 4-6tb of drive space).

Well, I checked all the drives thoroughly and all seems entirely happy.

I saw some posts on the lkml about the whole 32bit 64bit journal not being a problem any more and that seems to be the case for me, in fact these drives have been back and forth between 32bit 64bit back to 32 and now back to 64 without anything moaning in syslog or xfs_check or xfs_repair.
