And also CLFS2. To build BLFS packages using the --sysroot approach might be a 
nightmare ;-)

Plus, that could be the most easy one to implement due that there will be no 
need to exit/enter to/from the chroot and no need to test if the virtual 
filesystems are mounted.

But may requires harcoded download commads and build scripts for the 

Forgotten that all options requires manual blfs-tool reinstallation after 
booting the LFS system and creating a normal user.

For most avanced users we could to add general notes about setting manually 
ways 2 and 3.

As a note, before start playing with that on experimental maybe we should to
