Schluter says you can use a foam sheet, and you could probably use a piece of 5mm Kerdiboard to raise the pan without issue. You'd end up with a layer of thinset, which would raise it slightly more,...

A waterproof membrane doesn't really care what's beneath it, think of your roof...doesn't really matter if there's bare wood or plain drywall underneath it.

FWIW, grout curing is a one-way chemical reaction. Adding water later after that process has proceeded a bit does not make it softer. Now, many mastics will soften after they harden when wetted...

That could work. Make sure to make the board/tub junction waterproof.

Personally, with a solid backer wall, I'd consider using a 5mm (3/16") Kerdiboard panel. Waterproof the seams and the screw...

You'd need to be careful with your vapor barrier...CBU is not waterproof, but is not damaged by being wetted.

You could use a screed with SLC. An advantage of working in the winter is things are colder, and that will give you a bit more time.

I would think that you could chisel or drill a hole to make a slot at each end of that pipe run to gain a little bit of space to move the whole pipe.

If it's a small area, and you don't need more than 1/4", I'd be inclined to maybe use some thinset, let it cure, then put the pan down....
