I stopped using the set screws a few years ago.  I never found it to  
be a significant burden to align the rotor, hub, and wheel, IMHO.  I  
wouldn't sweat it, unless there's some purpose to the screw besides  
making wheel installation easier.  I just put a wheel on, align it to  
the rotor (easy to do, the rotor spins pretty freely), and then spin  
the two together until a lug bolt I'm pressing pops into the hub a bit.

But, most of the time it was with the luxury of time, some light, and  
a driveway :-)
