Charles: I don't think is necesary the division barrier if you plan to put the scraps to one compartment at a time. I should tell you that I've only worked with E. fetida. But I think the same aplies.
The idea work like this: If you separate both sides by a mesh, in the case of E. fetida, when the food in one side ends up, they simply are goin to go to the side where the food is. Then you can collect the compost and start the cycle again.
I dont know about those worms, so I can not tell the benefits of the inmature worms in the soil, but in our country the addition of vermicompost alone makes the earthworms to prosper (sorry, my english is not good enough).
I think your plan is great! I've been using my vermicompost in my garden and my job and the results are great.
