Yeah, I prefer not to use that strategy if possible, it has the following inherent problem:

Computer Murphy's Law #1: If two entires are storing state, sooner or later one of them will get confused.

I ALWAYS use the Update/ForceUpdate paradigm, where, regular updates benefit from eliminating redundant traffic, but if you want the current value, you use ForceUpdate which causes the current value to be sent, even if it is the same as the last sent value.
