CULT: Transferring seeds

This month in a bed I discovered 4 seedlings from 2000.  

I have sprouted seeds in  8" pots. I want to transfer the sprouts to 
six pack containers, before lining them out. I want the sprouts to 
develop a good system before I put them in the cold ground. Most of 
the time I have time to piddle around.

Is this a good approach, a bad approach or just wasting time?

Al, I have done this on occasion when I had just a few sprouts
form a difficult or unusual cross and feared they couldn't 
take the hot sun here if lined out with the others.  I moved 
them into larger pots, one seedling per four or six inch pot.
Then, in the fall I unpotted them and planted the entire root
ball.  They didn't know they had been moved previously. I had kept
them in partial shade all summer.

Should work really well for you where it is a little cooler.
