Absolutely utilize taxonomies if they work as a storage schema and the API
suits what you're doing. If the UI requires some tweaking, that's quite easy
to do; WordPress allows unlimited flexibility there. As you mentioned, you
can use your own meta box callback (and the handling of the posted data
server-side), but you can also disable, customize, or entirely replace
edit-tags.php, or really whatever else you need to do.
