Neat! What are you using for router hardware? I've done this as well. I used a desktop with ethernet and wifi expansion cards for several years, and then moved to a PC Engines apu2c2 http://www.pcengines.ch/apu2c2.htm.
At first it was an Intel Atom ITX board, then replaced by a Core i3 Haswell and finally I ended up with an apu2c4. Storage is an internal 128gb mSATA SSD and WIFI is handled within 2 separate VLANs by a Unifi UAP-AC-Lite. It is running really smooth and without any issues. At the moment I even have two WAN uplinks and created some hooks for dhcpcd/pppd to dynamically manage my routing tables and iptables rulesets.

Do you monitor PHP-related security issues? It sounds like you do, and if you're providing hosting services to customers, you probably should be. :-) Do you have any interest in sharing that knowledge by volunteering for the Arch CVE monitoring team https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_CVE_Monitoring_Team? Nobody is specifically monitoring PHP issues.
Mainly I'm just subscribed to the *-announce MLs for every important piece of software I use and oss-sec, bugtraq and fulldisclosure in addition.
I like to keep an eye on vulnerabilities in general and make sure to take precations if necessary.
I'll keep that idea in mind and think about it.
