Those are good ideas to help out with the wobble. It is a concern but if you watch the column of sts that you're backstitching into, it'll help keep the seam straight. This may also be a reason to use mattress stitch since you can see the columns of sts a little more easily and make a straight seam.

Is there some way to run a contrasting color thread along the line of stitches to be used in the back stitch? I've tried to do back stitch and gave it up as a lost cause, for me it wasn't easy. I'd still like to learn to do it.

Center seam
The pattern actually calls for the center (center front & center back) to show. So I will attempt the backstitch for this but hoped to get some sort of knitters secret on how to ensure the line is straight. Maybe I'll baste it first rather than pin.

Basting along the seamline is a very good idea. I don't think following a line of sts will be such a problem once you get started.
