Does the second of these methods fall foul of the rules on number of hunt bells? Or have those rules been abolished by now? (TBH, I don't keep track as well as I might). If not, then I agree with your assessment that these appear to be allowed as methods. I think I would classify them as one of the very few things that are currently allowed, but I think should not be allowed (on account of the stationary 3rd).
