steadyshifter has brought up the possibility of the Origin8 cable stops, which may be plastic, and much easier to modify. Since my build will be white and black, I ordered a set of these to hack on.

Another possibility is the black plastic model Shimano packaged with Tiagra and Sora STI's. Yet another possibility are the Cannondale cable stops used on the R700. They were odd looking, but may be easier to modify. Those bikes used flat-back stops on the removable posts.

I've also contacted several eBay sellers about a 4.5M bolt for the braze-on, and will update here. I know of one successful solution using 4.0 bolts and JB Weld.
