Except that I have no known way of converting bin/cue to MP3 (besides
maybe having a completed rip, then "mounting" that rip somehow, bit
that won't let me play it while I rip it.

Technically yes, but it stutters enormously as the CDROM has to jump
back and forth all the time in increasingly larger steps as playing is
slower then ripping.

I keep the WAV for as long as a) the encoding to mp3 goes on and b)
for as long at it is played "for the first time", ie. for the duration
of the playback-while-ripping-and-encoding phase.
