While I find the article interesting, and have no reason to doubt the research, I disagree with the idea that it matters whether specific places can be identified from the Book of Mormon story. If it were important to be able to do so Nephi would have been more specific in his descriptions. If I need physical proof of something before I believe then my faith is dependent on something other than a spiritual conviction of the truth. I suppose that could be useful for somebody just learning about the Book of Mormon as a seed on which to build a more enduring testimony.

I totally agree with all you have written and feel that this is the only possibility considering Nephi's description. I appreciate all the effort and expense you have put into this research.
