As @dougzz99 says why are you interested in achieving Gold with BA? Do you want to have access to the First Wing and the Galleries First lounge at LHR just for the sake of trying it? If not what would having Gold give you? You already have lounge access via the Silver status.

On the other hand as you have discovered earning status in another airline alliance is more difficult and again what does that status give you unless you intend to travel frequently with that other alliance.

If you are going to do a lot of flying across alliances it may make sense to diversify but if you are likely to choose Oneworld flights anyway then just concentrate on BA’s scheme.
