We solved that problem by attaching the regulators to the FRK back plate  
which is with fan control is kept within 0.01C. We did not do it for that  
purpose but found that we needed some more heat in order to keep the fan in an 
 optimum fan speed. Rb, OCXO and Fan power transistor are on the back 
plate.  Works for us.

Yes, in order to get low PPM stability, you are going  to "roll your own". 
No 3-terminal regulator or reference that I know of  can run an OXCO 
and oscillator).
What are your voltage and  current requirements?
