That looks like a great solution to the foot overlap. In my case because I mounted the FVC feet with flat side out it would not have worked. I simply moved the foot to the front about 3 inches and drilled two 3/8" holes in the rack. I did that on both sides just to keep it symmetrical even though there is not a ladder obstruction on the other side. There is no excuse for an awesome rack in this price range to have t-nuts that need altered to work. It took me probably 5 minutes on my bench grinder to polish off the burs to make them slide past the black rack transitions, an easy fix at the manufacturer before shipping out.I had a very similar issue with the FVC roof rail system - I contacted support and they sent me a whole new set of nuts - the new set were very different from the first - much better finish, rounded corners... almost like they had come from a totally different supplier. I sent them back a couple nuts at their request. I also have an Aluminess side ladder and found that one of the brackets overlapped a rack foot. I made an aluminum spacer out of 3/16" plate for the other bracket and mounted the ladder using the same hardware as the rack.
