I agree with that.
I'm concerned about the nuts being replaced by the quick release lever. If you are very careful and you are the only one to ever change the wheel, it could be fine, but.. if anyone else gets a hold of it...
With the torque bar on one side taking braking force there is a lot more force to twist the wheel in the dropouts. The force is very one sided. With rim brakes it's more even. With the nuts each side is secured independently. If one nut is loose, or is loosened by the wheel twisting, the other nut can still be tight. With the quick release if one moves, they both may come loose. With the coaster brake, axle nuts on each side are safer. That's my only concern.
