I can answer the question about the first method.  When using xi the groups
created from i.insgrp2 are static once the command is executed -- they do
not change when you change the value of insgrp2 after the fact.  Therefore,
since insgrp2 is not in your model (instead it is _Iinsgrp*), changing it's
value has no impact on predict.  You would need to change the values of the
variables created by xi.   That is, in effect, what your second proposed
approach is, but there you only change one dummy variable to all ones, but
you don't reset the other dummy variables to zero, so I don't think you will
get the answers you're looking for.
