Marching Band + WGI template feedback & arranging process question

I've made a couple templates for marching band over at https://musescore.org/en/node/111531. I was looking for your ideas on them. Specifically:
1. How did your maching band handle percussion parts? Were they written with the wind parts, or were the parts that came with the arrangement usually re-written to suit your specific ensemble?
2. For the "WGI" scores (which could also double as the percussion parts for a marching band that writes them separately), do you agree with my selection of instrumentation? It's clearly nuts to try to believe that there's any "standard" pit, but do I have good starting points for both?
