I now have a couple of NON Scimitar ones which would be of use to LHD cars if anyone was interested over seas.
I can ask in the Dutch club catering for anything BMC or later.

The only problem with adding ePAS to a manual rack is that you'd still have the 4.7 lock to lock ratio and there are no Quick racks for a princess as far as I've seen so far

Seems to me that if we can find any car with the right width rack, then the LHD version could possibly be made to fit
The LHD RHD thing Is a question of whether the rack is forward of the front axle line, or not
And regarding bump steer considerations for this, seems the critical thing is the rack length / length of steering arms
The Scim rack is quite a bit wider than your average Escort Mk2 (loads of quick racks for those) - but modern cars are so much wider then before, so there could actually be a few to choose from - Mercedes for example
