Good question. The guitar won't go out of tune if you change the tuning since the bridge is fixed, but since it's double locking, you can't change the tuning without unlocking the nut.
The big advantages of a fixed bridge guitar are, IMO:
1) You can easily change tunings
2) Better tone and sustain from not having large routed cavities and te large mass of metal a trem requires.
The FX-edge thing provides neither, and also can't be used as a trem.
The fine tuner trick can work, but of course if your string goes out of tune, you can no longer use the fine tuner to adjust it, and you're back to unlocking the nut.
IMO the best solution is to either find a JS6/6000
and install a Sperzel or Hipshot d-tuning device, or to get a used JS1 or 900, block the trem, and put a D-Tuna on that since it should work with original Edge trems.
