I've done this many times (drooling at some APS camera's MRC options).
I'd add to your list:
1a) immediatedly stop rewinding as soon as you hear and feel the film
is getting loose from the sprocket. Thus there always will be a film

3a) make sure you always use the same technique for loading the film,
and always take one extra blank shot. This will prevent any double
