This is just an effort, at the request of our client, to be proactive and avoid notices to supply examination support documents.

I'm not convinced that being proactive is actually worth the trouble, as 1) there is a pending court case that may stay implementation of the rules, and 2) in most cases, no loss of rights or options should occur as a result of waiting for the notice.  
That said, looking now might provide some extra time to respond.  Also there are situations for which there will be no notice.   For example, you may have situations where the 5/25 rule applies across two or more applications, but for which each application contains less than 5/25.
