Really excited to see what you are working on Parga - we need a compliance device here behind the iron kurtain in a big way!

Based on your above description and my understanding of the new AW definition, one issue I see is that if the mag catch/BHO screw can be removed with the action closed (thus allowing the modified magazine catch to release the magazine with the action closed) then it will still be an Assault Weapon in the eyes of the DOJ. In a nutshell you are using a tool (to remove parts) to remove the magazine with the action closed = not really all that different than the current FAL 'bullet buttons' we have to use. Perhaps I am misunderstanding your description?
