I'm new to LoDo brewing, but share your concerns about removing the beer from the yeast cake too soon. I've got two batches on tap now (helles and pils), and I did what you are proposing. Simply put, I added 5oz corn sugar (dry) to the keg, purged with CO2, and then transferred from primary using CO2 to push. I keg-conditioned the beer at garage temp (~80F) x 1 week and then put on tap. Turned out fantastic - at least for the three weeks its been on tap.
I say go for it.
I have a keg primed pilsner that's 3 months old and still holding on really well. That said I feel spunding is still the best option. But I would feel better if there were a homebrew size uni tank to drop the yeast at my preferred timing.
