This sound like the right approach for this particular problem? I have extractors, but the soft metal doesn't strike me as though it would grab well.

Thoughts?
Extractors, like was said above, are a last resort in my opinion. I would cut a slot with a dremel, like you said, and use a screwdriver. Worst thing that could happen is you end up removing the whole head and then use an extractor on the remainer of bolt, which should come out since there won't be any tension on it with the head gone.
