Tab washer should be ok. Should also be able to drill the cotter pin hole in the shaft while installed. It might be a tough SS, but it is not that tough. A good bit and proper cutting fluid and a battery drill should do it.

Domed nut may be fine, as it has held up for a long time. Just would rather see a very positive restraint should a nut loosen. Two nuts and a cotter are dead reliable.
