So your /tools directory will be newer binutils/gcc/glibc and then...

You want to downgrade them? This won't work, at least for gcc you will 
have problems because of the newer/older versions of binutils.

If this is what you want to do, I'd try following the 5.1.1 book, except 
for the header file stuff. Just use the unstable book's instructions for 
providing kernel headers to glibc, and linux-libc-headers for userspace 
headers, and that's all. Don't upgrade any other packages.

However, since this is not a stable book build, it doesn't belong on 
this list. In fact, since it's not an unstable build either, if you want 
to chat about it you'll need to go to lfs-chat, and don't expect much 
support from the LFS developers :-)
