comment Does transforming to a new projection, then back, affect data accuracy?
Agree. Also, be aware ArcGIS displays 6 decimal places of a Double datatype by default in the Table View. You can change the properties of the field to display 12 decimal places, in the table view. Geographic xy values are typically 9 decimal places or so, double precision.

comment Is there any way to capture ArcMap Drawing Errors inside of a python script?
I would run Check Geometry on each feature class. You can query the output tables, looking for Null Geometry, Unclosed rings, etc.

If your data is in Shapefile format, be sure to build a Spatial Index. ArcGIS automatically maintains a spatial index for all data in a file geodatabase.
