This is the latest wrinkle in a problem project, and I just want to see if I'm missing anything.

The developer didn't block Google from crawling a redesigned site -- http://staging.oooops.com (a made up name). Here's my tentative game plan...
What am I missing?

Is the staging site dead forever or will it be used again in the future?

If it will never be used again then I think your plan is sound. Canonical tags on the staging pages back to the main site may help.

I've just had bad experiences in the past making sitewide redirect rules, and then having to spend a bunch of time and effort untangling the mess afterwards when I realized I wanted to use those pages again.

Don't think it should be too big of an issue though.
