Great, that is an excellent solution. Unlike a rivet it will permit relatively easy removal of the cage if required. It is also more secure than a roll pin. If the machinist is willing to do it, see if he will machine a head on one end, so that a circlip is required on only one end. No reason, other than it looks a little more professional.
