Svend, don't be so self-deprecating  :o .  Using the brake to center the rotor was a revelation, and once you said it I wondered why I wasn't smart enough to think of that. I have adjusted the brakes on my bike when I changed wheels, and had dealt with the caliper wanting to walk around, but I had been visually centering the caliper on the rotor.

That (the Q-tip) sounds like a good annual end of the year procedure. 
Before the piston starts sticking.
