I am one who is 110% gluten free due to Celiac Spru disease so there is no fudging on my diet. 
First, I want to say thank you for working with people with dietary needs. What you have worked out should be modeled by other chefs.
I am also an advocate for self advocacy. It should be individual people's responsibility to get the information on time to the chefs or read the cards provided to determine if they can eat a dish or not. I think the chefs of the SCA's are making huge efforts to accommodate all of us so we should meet them half way and do our part.
Okay, stepping off this soap box and onto another. My poor Super Teacher cape is getting tattered today.

Really, as long as you make an attempt to not have any particular 
ingredient be in ALL your dishes (onions are a good example), and you've 
announced that people with specific dietary needs should contact you, 
you're fine. Somone comes to you day-of and starts complaining that you 
didn't do X to accomodate them, your response should be "I'm sorry, did 
you submit a dietary restrictions form? No? Then it is not my problem."
