I may have found my own answer.... I talked to an old friend today. He still works for Porsche and used to be my boss 20+ years ago. (no Geritol comments necessary)

He pointed out that since the bearing is still on the pinion, that means the pinion depth is still technically set. No one would press off the bearing to remove the shims and put it back on nice and neat. Therefore, the only thing I will have to set is lash and that's often set by feel. (if you have a calibrated wrist) Or if necessary, with a dial indicator. You could then sanity test the settings by using prussian blue to check the pattern.

I think I'm about to save $1500 ;-)
