Heck, if the caliper had ovalized mounting holes, you'd be set! You could probably get a small round file and open up the mounting holes enough to get the caliper some side to side play.
Here's what I do. I loosen my bolts on the caliper, and then squeeze the lever. I use a velcro strap around the lever to keep it tight. I then tighten down the bolts (SNUG, not tight).
Release, spin wheel, and check for rubbing. If there is rubbing, I stop the wheel where it rubs, lock down the lever again. Loosen the bolts, wiggle the caliper and retighten. Release lever and check again.
I end up doing this about 3 times until it's perfect. Once the rotor doesn't rub, I torque the bolts to spec. YES, I use a torque wrench!
