This unfortunate soul will then be assigned to either thurifer, crucifer, MC or any other singular role so as to preserve the "symmetry" of the remaining, bearded ministers.

I like how you've actually thought that far ahead. I'd probably end up being crucifer since I physically can't grow a beard, but it's a consignment I accept with gratitude. Or thurifer, but only if I'm allowed to swing the thurible a full 360 degrees when in procession.

Returning briefly to this previous comment you made:

I can see that regarding servers in albs, but can the same really be said for trads and priests in Gothic or full chasubles in general? Surely there are some SSPX, FSSP and ICRSS priests who like to use them, even if fiddleback is the norm.

Also, in my ideal church, servers would still wear cassock and surplice at low Masses and Lauds/Vespers, and the schola (oh, and don't forget the porters) would wear them all the time. The albs and amices would be used by servers at solemn Mass only. That seems like a fair balance.
