Looks fine to me. You could also double up on the rack mounts as well instead of the axle if you were so inclined. The only advantage would be less hassle on a flat change (or whenever you might remove your wheels)
Yes, I was thinking about doing that but when I tried it I noticed something very important - the fender stays are to long for the eyelets and if I mount them there then the fender itself is pried up against the wheel and there is just no way.

And how many threads are holding that rear skewer nut on?
Don't worry. Odd are you won't totally die when it pops off.
If it were mine, I'd cut the fender stays shorter to remove the excess length and drill new 5 mm or 7/32" holes through them so I could double up the fender stays with the rack mounting bolts. As I bRAD noted, changing a flat with the fenders mounted the way they are will be a real hassle.
As to your skewer, don't worry. You have plenty of thread engagement even with the current situation.
