I have a difficulty judging the alternatives (except the last one),
without any concrete suggestions.  If you have more specific
suggestions, please tell.

While in principle, having all the permutations is tough, this
specific case has a small number of them, so failing an attempt to
find a better alternative, I don't see any terribly big problem with
what I suggested.
