I don't understand your argument, after adjusting the wear should slow down substantially the the balls can distribute load more evenly so the concern of not making it home does not really apply.
Also in regard of expenses it is the other way around: cones are available for appr. $10 each; the original DA axle I have seen from $60 and above (I so far had a Shimano 600 axle in stock, which just brings out the non drive side crank 1mm more (the original Dura Ace spindle is asymmetric)
