Is scoping +5 & +12 from the Molex connectors in the front of the BA23
sufficient, or are there other rails I'll need to hunt down and probe?

Nah only to auto boot. You still get to the boot prompt without one. I
have never actually had a MV2 with a working battery and I have
certainly booted them. Hundreds of times of times. I throw them away
because they leak and there is really no reason to deal with the hassle
of replacing them.
