My preferred method is the "carrier approach" (that way I can also use the carrier touchdown to describe my semi-controlled crash :) ). I find that I float less in the transition from this approach as opposed to the forward slip approach. But I use that approach when I find myself in traffic and can't (as you noted) just insert the carrier approach.
