Correct ! Long time ago I had a piano teacher who claimed that arrangements were always less good than original... But when you simply cannot play the music, either you use this kind of strategy, or you give up playing a beautiful 8' piece just because 10 seconds of hell.
Anyway, there may be other ways of re-writing, which keep the melody more apparent. Looking forward to seeing your version, Chris !
