    What you mean by

    <<4. Edit your masterpage in the web editor of your choice>>

    if this mean editing and changing existing default master pages, i don't agree with you, because it's possible that for next SP365 updates, made by Microsoft, these master pages will be rewritten

    if you mean to customize his new , master page . yes, i agree with your solution
