That mic should work just fine. At the present time a package without the mic is not available. Think of it as a low cost backup in case you tear off the Shure cable at a gig. It's still a bargin compared to your old system.
There is more info about 3rd party mics in the XD-V FAQ in the "documents" section.

It might be a little while before I make the purchase, though.
But with our band moving to in-ear monitors, I have a feeling my current wireless mic will start having issues which will expediate the process. Trying to operate 10 IEMs plus a couple of wireless mics can lead to intermodulation issues pretty quickly. Getting up and out of the regular wireless band sounds like a good/safe move.

I thought I should reply to this as I've been using this set-up now for about 6 months. It works just fine.
I use rechargeable batteries (NiMh) so I can't really comment on the power consumption since I always use a freshly charged pair which last through a gig (up to 3 hours).
There are definitely better horn mics out there but for $140, the Shure gets the job done.
