    I think all of your points are valid, but here's the catch as I see it, the cylinder or domino method (for front silvered mirrors) works equally well for rear silvered mirrors.  Not so the other way around (using the arc).  So if you are not sure you can use the cylinder method and still know that you have got it right.
