Using proximity sensors for limit switches seems like an awesome idea! I think I could include one in my tail stock side bearing mount design. That would definitely help with some of the ideas I have had. We have some quite large sensors like that in the aluminium chip pucker at work.

I seriously considered including a tailstock-detecting sensor in my build, especially as the saddle already has another couple of proxes and a 7i73 in it. I can't remember why I didn't, in fact. Perhaps I was concerned about false-triggering as I moved up the taisstock to drill?
(I quite often drill manually while the CNC is running a turning cycle)
