I tend to agree the old story - a miss is as good as a mile - you have to remember often the front RD only has the same or less clearance on the chain, one also considers one pedaling how much of the time are you going to be on the highest (lowest teeth) gear. If its a problem when you assemble it, dropping the wheel out adding a washer to give more space on the rear chain stay is very easy.
