Brake "centering" screw stuck: what to do?

One of the screws that centers caliper got stuck. I don't think threads are cross threaded, but I inadvertently stripped the "hex" socket, so I can't screw it in to get out. It is BR-RE011 on the diagram. I tried to dremel the slot on its head to use flat head screwdriver, tried putting WD40 and PB blaster and yet I can't get it out! What would you recommend me to do at this point? Anything can be done to save this caliper - it is a nice one. <br> <br> Many thanks in advance for advice!
