I'm still waiting for a RasberryPi, so I can't give you any actual experience.

You should be able to use the Pi for what it's good at, networking, file service, video generation ...

Use the ARM for what it's good at, yes while the ARM is slower than the Pi it has far less software between you and the hardware. It's also much easier to control the hardware from the ARM, than having to deal with drivers in linux. Probably the easiest interface between the 2 would be a serial link.
