Power selector and regulator module

I am building this power selecting/splitter module and would like to ask if there are any glaring ommisions or reccomended additions to the system.

I have two inputs which will get connected at the same time or either one of them depending on the setup.
If the 24v one is present it should have higher priority so I am using an MBR2045CTG Switch Mode Power Rectifier to select the higher voltage.

As outputs, firstly the unregulated output of the rectifier, and then I would need 12v and 24v. The values don't have to be exact on the decimal point. For that I plan on using two LM2578 Auto Buck Boost boards set to the respective values.

The LM2578: https://www.amazon.com/Converter-Electrical-converters-Regulator-DCCON-MS8/dp/B00LGJ48AC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1482500052&sr=8-3&keywords=LM2587

Is there anything else I could add to the circuit? Maybe diodes for each output? Voltage suppressors for the buck boost? Capacitors?IMG_20161223_153859-01.jpg
