I'd go with M5 and a nut. I understand the desire to 'do it right' but I don't see how changing the threading in the frame is better than something that's completely non-destructive. But as due...

I don't think I will buy one. I have too many bikes that i like already, and the cost is an order of magnitude higher than I've ever paid for a bike.

It sounds to me like your saddle is too wide. Possibly the edge is too hard; but if the saddle were narrower there, that wouldn't matter.
