If you output 5V, you may even pipe that straight into the 5V of the Arduino, instead of taking the losses from the linear regulator.
Be careful about this - the new regulators being used are not tolerant of having 5V on their output and nothing on their input. Datasheet would suggest a diode from output (anode) to input(cathode).
