I believe for the 9500XL family it’s 8ma when using 3.3V on the IO banks.

That'd be my only concern, as don't the CPLD output drive quite a bit of current?  I can't tell whether one can safely assume that since the impedence of the R2R is 10K, that the most current output would be 3V3/10K = .33mA and thus 1mW of output.  That seems low to me...
