Default straighten/quantizing a freetime song ?

I have a (multi-mic'ed) drumtrack here from a drummer that has a bit of timing problems.
The song was recorded freetime (without click).
The band wants me to straighten the timing so that it follows a steady bpm/click more or less.

The whole drum track ends up being converted to MIDI to trigger a drum VST enventually.

So I thought my step are:

- dynamic split the tracks and convert to MIDI (fairly easy)

- tempo-map it so it follows Reaper's click (fairly easy)

- 'make the tempo straight' - haven't got to this step yet, but I thought after having done steps 1 and 2 I could just delete Reaper's tempo track and the MIDI will follow (having the project set to 'Beats (position, length, rate) so I'd have a steady tempo then.

Is that it or is it not that easy ? Did I miss anything ?

If anyone is interested, I've gone through these steps meanwhile.
I used the SWS tempo mapping method described here:

Only things to pay attention to is (as described there) to set the MIDI items to 'ignore tempo' before mapping, then glue, then remove the tempo map and voila, MIDI is straightened, worked out quite well.

The band can be happy to have a skilled Reaper user.
