the thought did cross my mind to buy one of those instead (or in addition to), for the simple fact that most machinist vises aren't that great for a draw filer (no real clearance) and those are about the best.

I still may buy one of those yet. It's a good suggestion, though. When I draw file something like a knife blade (instead of belting it), it's always a challenge and I usually end up filing much of the blade with some spring in the metal (not really that pleasant).
