Funny, I have no worries about the sturdiness of the cage or it's attachment to the case. There are some "cleats" on the bottom of the cage that mate with cleats in the case - those do at least half of the work, while the plastic screw flange does the other half. I imagine the "bucket" part of the screw flange is there to catch the screws when you unscrew them.
Oh, and you mentioned the top fan filter on the case - I just throw that thing away. And I always mount the PSU with the fan facing down so it sucks air out of the case. The PSU external air vents never make sense to me. I want the PSU helping out with case ventilation.
