VA-ZL "interlining" (Virgin Australia / Regional Express)

Rex's website at Booking Info :: Interline Agreements talks about "interline agreements". As far as I can tell, however, this is separate tickets and separate checkins, right?

Interline agreements for Rex:
MAY ISSUE TICKETS INCLUDING
BI GF ZL

MAY CHECK BAGGAGE TO
BI GF VA ZL
MCT is "ZL-VA DD 1.00", and the above link says at least 1 hour... I'm unclear on who would be responsible in the case of delays. Rex's offer of travel insurance seems to imply taking it will cover misconnections.

Has anybody used this setup since? I'd like to combine MEL-ADL with VA and ADL-PUG with ZL.

I used it recently KGC-ADL-ASP and it was seamless. We were on separate tickets KGC-ADL and ADL-ASP. We provided a copy of our VA tickets to the ZL agent and the bags were tagged all the way through to ASP. We were given a slip of paper to provide the VA agents in the lounge or at the gate in ADL so they would know how much our bags weighed. I did not immediately follow my parents into the lounge, so I don't know if the VA agent actually asked for the bag weight information. If you're doing it the other way around I assume it works pretty much the same way.
