Great analysis, Peter. Very well done.
You've covered virtually all of the issues.
For what it's worth, while it's still kinda grey, I agree with your assesement on the tax issues on debt financed property. I can find NO trustee/lender that will grant a loan on IRA owned property without some type of personal guarantee...and as you point out, a personal guarantee will (in my opinion) trigger a prohibited transaction.
For additional information on taxes in your IRA, check out my article on that very subject in the Tax Center.
