I can't remember where I read it but one of the guys said that they did rehearse H&H but Ozzy couldn't do it so it was dropped. I'm not sure about that story about regarding COTS being recorded with Ozzy though. It was the first song Dio wrote with them when he joined and those lyrics are obviously Dio. So if they did record a version with Ozzy it's not the one we know today.

If Rush can down tune Temples Of Syrinx low enough that Geddy can still sing it, then Sabbath can do the same with SBS so Ozzy can pull it off. They could make it work, it's just a question of Ozzy wanting to do it.
As for a kind of realistic set once the new album comes out:
Children Of The Grave
Symptom Of The Universe
Guitar solo/pointless 15 min jam
Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath
Into The Void
