OK, consider me warned :)

So, for something like the REF02 are you using that as your central, stable VRef and runnning your other VRefs of of that? e.g. if you need a stable +3.5V and +1.25V and -1.25V - you'd create them from the stable +5V of the REF02?

What then are you using to create those 'sub' VRefs?
