If you really wanted a binding that can shift back and forth when you want and doesn't require remounting, you might want to look at Marker Schizo binding in either Griffon or Jester version (13 & 18 DIN respectively). These bindings allow you to adjust easily +/- 3cm from your mounting point.
To be honest I wouldn't lose much sleep over this issue just mount them and ski, if you really have issues with the way they ski then have them remounted. In most cases people overthink this whole issue, and if you just ski them you will become accustomed to how they ski.
This is a classic skier thing where we try to over think and geek/tech out over minutia, that the majority of skiers would not really notice a substantial difference either way......but they'll tell you they do, and in most cases it's all in their head.
