Wing Chun vs. groundfighting

Does anyone here have experience fighting vs. ground fighting styles with Wing Chun? It's kind of hard to evaluate the effectiveness of a form that you're not supposed to use in sport.

Our entire Wing Chun Kwoon cross trains in BJJ. BJJ is sports fighting, what makes it attractive to our system of Wing Chun is it's "principals" and training methods. Once you get your head around them, they mirror many of the concepts in Wing Chun. One of the first things in BJJ I remember practicing was a passing the guard drill which, when you break it down is a chi sau drill (or more correctly a chi sun drill - sticking body). When we train we often include strikes etc in grappling techniques (why wouldn't you in a non sports setting?). when we free grapple we strike & knee etc. When we free spar it occasionally goes to the ground and continues there until someone wants to get back up.
Sounds like good training to me.
