I'd want to minimize center/center spacing, via the rounded shape, and a rear-mounted tweeter (with the dome right up against the edge of the beveled shape). I wouldn't want to do this with the flat beveled piece, and the pointed arrangement doesn't allow quite as close a CTC spacing since the midwoofer frame will need to be further down. Because the distance from the midwoof panel edge to the tweeter will be widely varied (and "soft" because of the bevel) I think this would exhibit both better summation and minimal diffraction artifacts. Felt on the portion closest to the dome might not be a bad idea though, if it's right next to the dome.

I am in agreement with you that more thought should be given to decreasing the ctc distance between the two drivers. If you are going to rear mount the dome tweeter why not use part of the radius contour between the two devices as part of the slope leading into the dome tweeter and remove the steps as shown on boris81's cross sectional dtawings? Sometimes it is as simple as cutting a section of the front plate away so you can put the two devices closer together.
