Tommi,

In short, I would say that suggestion 1 is the way to go. A key thing to
point out is that when EV's partially overlap it does not mean that
they will be a problem with insufficent independence. The rank deficieny
warning, which kicks in when there is a concern that there is insufficient
information to fully drive the parameter estimation, is a conservative
warning. Hence, there are lots of occasions that this warning appears when
the design is fine, but it is there as a warning to double check your design.
In your case the design appears fine.

All the best.

Cheers, Mark.
