Your list is a good one (and should certainly be used with the published Final Action rules).

I'm aware that it's hard to convince players that 0 AP means out of action, but I do think the game works better that way. (For one thing, you really ought to allow NPCs to do the same. And it would be allowable outside of combat -- arguments would never end as people kept trying to get in the last word. And I'm not sure how you'd reconcile it with mystic strikes/secrets that work at 0 AP.)

And as Philip points out, you are far more likely to kill characters with this rule.
