Multiple thesauri in catalog

I do authority control in a VERY large library system which has both research and circulating collections.

Any suggestions for handling multiple thesauri in one catalog?
We get MARCIVE records for GPO documents that may have headings for many different thesauri (MESH,  NASAT, DICT, LCSH, for example)
We have also started using GSAFD Genre headings in conjunction with LCSH as appropriate.  Anyone involved in creating crosswalks?

Suggestions for handling multiple language headings in one catalog BIDEX, RUM, SWD would also be welcome
(I am of the opinion that as an English language cataloging agency we should remove them so as not to create confusion, and strip them from records, however I do keep nonroman headings.)
