Reading section 10, I reckon my solution would be a perfectly acceptable repair, as the complete load bearing assembly has been replaced...

Yeh, I think it's patching is the problem, not panel replacement.

It's technically panel replacement rather than a patch repair, so be interesting to get a definitive answer from Henry D :y

A patch repair continuously welded is an acceptable repair anywhere on the shell,its suspension arms and the like that shouldn't be welded

better to cut out complete than patch--having to replace patches on cars--as metal under patch can corrode-then your back to square one again
I would rough cut one from scrapper and then drill spot welds and then install

You are right it is much better to cut out and replace with new tin,sadly when its an old shitter of a Ford Ka that needs a ticket and the owner thinks it'll cost a tenner then standards may have to slip a bit !!.
