Well, you can use the allen mount front as a nut mount rear. Problem half solved. If you are willing to drill something, the back of the fork crown seems a lot less sketchy to me. If you can tolerate that, you can use one of the super long allen nuts meant for a fat carbon fiber fork and use a normal rear allen mount as a front brake. I am not aware of any other way that doesn't require replacing at least one of the brake bolts.
