Connecting Camera to a strap and tripod at the same time?

So this is a well discussed topic across the internet, and there are many solutions proposed. - How to connect a camera with quick release straps and tripod at the same time? - in this case, I am using for a Nikon D7100.

  • BlackRapid Cargo (RS-5)
  • MeFoto RoadTrip Tripod (Comes with MeFoto Q1 Ball head) - they are similar to the Benro.

What is the most best solution to connect a BlackRapid Tripod FastenR (FR-T1) or just the standard FastenR (FR-3) ?

Few options -

Change the Ballhead for the tripod and use one from Manfrotto or 3LT?
Change the ballhead's connect adapter - and use a Manfrotto RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter ?
Use a AirHed1 plate from 3LT ? Are they compatible with Arca style MeFoto plates?
Use a Joby UltraPlate?
Use a Fusion Plate ? (coolest in my opinion)
Does any one know an arca style plate that connects to the BlackRapid FastneR for Tripods?

Any other ideas?
