Thanks, I seriously almost went with your suggestion. The weight of the chain, even with the new derailleur that had the stiffer spring, was just too much. I think the chain would bounce and hit the chain stay at every bump in the road with only a dimple. At least with the size dimple I think I could manage to put in the stay.Maybe just a dimple in the stay?

YES!Interesting way to mount a bottom bracket!
Custom builds with derailleurs usually have chainline issues, maybe hang a derailleur sprocket as a jockey wheel off the back of that tube the bottom bracket is on? That would lift the chain up and should give you clearance...
It is begging for something along those lines. At a minimum a second shifter to manually fine tune alignment when shifting?Well that's different! I like the concept, hope it works.
Now take the next step and have both derailleurs articulate in concert with each other!
