I strongly suspect that you'll find that re-dishing will end up being necessary no matter what you do, so you might as well bite the bullet and do it right.
10s on a 130mm axle is tight enough as it is, so you'll already have the flanges as far to the right as possible. The only way to move it more to the right would be to go to 135mm, which would buy you another 2.5mm when the 5mm additional spacers are added to the left. If that's enough, it's a possibility, otherwise go ahead and do the job right.
Hint---- when dishing a rim farther to the right, over loosen the left then tighten the right spokes moving the rim father than needed, and finish bringing the rim home and the tension to tatget by tightening the left spokes. That will have you working the right spokes at slightly lower tension reducing the chances of rounding off nipples. Also use a 4 corner spoke wrench for the job.
