OK, In case anyone searches this thread out with the same issue, I'm going to answer my own question based on my experience with these fenders: Yes, you are stuck with trimming down the end and zip-tying the fender to the bridge. Other brands may be different, but I doubt it. Actually, the zip tie is pretty clean and subtle.
Also, rather than using the Sheldon nuts to make my recessed brake bolts compatible with the front fender, I adapted the hanger on the brake to sit inside the fork crown. Details in the 'tips' thread for those who care.
