Yea, I use the glove liners on the inside of my mittens. I switched from gloves to mittens a while back because the tips of my fingers would get really cold in gloves but mittens kept them all warm. And if I need to make an adjustment with my bindings, I have the glove liners that are covering my hand to adjust them.

But what kind of adjustments would require you to remove the mitten??

I have the Swany X-Change II gloves and then also purchased the mittens. I rock the mittens on most days unless it is warmer but still too cold for just my UA liner gloves. I have no problems putting on bindings, getting into my pockets, etc with my mittens on. I also never wear the UA liners with the mittens because they are so incredibly warm while I used to wear them with my gloves on really cold days.

Wow, for my first trip i've been looking for gloves all along but now from these posts i'm thinking maybe I should go mittens. I look around for those too. Where can you get the glove liners?

These are the mitts I have. They come with the under liner glove so it's a pretty good value. Plus, Gore-Tex ftmfw!

I have always rocked mitts as well. For the same reason as every one else; warmth.
I might wear some gloves in the spring, but they'd be the liners from the mitt, but more likely I'd be wearing the mitt shell.
