I'm late on this but to answer the original question, I have 2 features on Vegas, one with DVX100a footage and one with HVX200 footage using Raylight. Both worked perfectly fine. Just keep your sequences around 15 minutes or so and then combine them all into one master timeline and you should be set. I've never had a stability problem when taking that approach, and this was back with Vegas 6 and 7. Vegas 8 still opens those files perfectly and handles them perfectly.
I've cut two features with Vegas. The first one was back in 2007-2008 using Sony Vegas Pro 7. I only had 512MB RAM and cut the entire film in one project. No issues. My last feature was also cut in Vegas Pro 7 with only 512MB RAM (these were both shot on regular DV) and also with the entire picture in one project. The last film was mastered in Vegas as well, though I upgraded to 2 gigs RAM right before grading. No issues. I'm shooting my third feature (HD this time) in August and I'll be using Vegas again for cutting, though I'm considering adding AE to my workflow. I'm currently experimenting with HDV, RED, and 7D footage to decide which camera I want to use and find a workflow that works well with my system specs. I'm actually gravitating toward RED at this point as Vegas Pro 9 (which I now use) supports RED very well and even allows for the editing of the Metadata, meaning less AE work.
But back to the original question, yes, two features, all in one timeline, with a subpar system and no issues. I should add that both features were cut using the Draft mode in Vegas, sort of an on-the-fly offline editing mode.

Friend of mine cut/edited/colored his feature film on a PC which was shot on the RED. The FX were also done on a separate PC. He's editing his second RED feature on a PC too.
Not sure it would be possible on Vegas though. Hehe.
