Default I-864 - London (sponsor without salary)

I thought I'd take the time to post this, in case it is relevant to anyone else in the future.
I have my interview in London next week and I have a couple of doubts over the I-864 although I have covered myself, with a co-sponsor.
My US wife is obviously the main sponsor, however there are a
couple of potential "banana skins"

1/. We married in the US last year (September) and moved to the UK. Because my wife only worked 9 months of the tax year, her earnings did not reach the 125% and apparently the INS do note
"pro rata" her earnings.
However by adding my UK earnings that should be OK

2/. Because she is a hairdresser, she has no basic wage, she receives 50% of her "takings" + tips. (company policy)
Her returns for 1999 and 2000 covered the 125% and 2001 would
have done but for the reason in point 1/. above.
She has now returned to the States to "set up domicile" rent a
property, buy a car and has returned to her old job.
However her employer can't provide a letter saying that she earns
$xxxx per year, but are sending a letter stating that they see no reason why her earnings should not reach those of previous years.

As I said earlier I have covered us with co-sponsors, but will initially at the interview try to "get through" with out own I-864,
and only "pull the rabbit out of the hat" if I need to.

If there is anyone reading this who is or may be in a similar position, I will post the results of my interview at the end of next week.
