For all those non-standard callings, just go ahead and use custom positions. There is nothing at all wrong with using custom positions -- that feature is in MLS for good reasons. You of course need to use standard callings for all those callings for which a standard MLS calling exists, but where it does not exist, feel free to create a custom position.
For a "Munch&Mingle coordinator" there is no special access to any Church websites beyond what any member has. So there is no problem with such a person having a custom calling. The bottom line is that MLS already does almost exactly what you are requesting -- just use custom callings.
I suppose the one item that you are hoping for is that the "Leadership Directory" would show all people with callings. But that is not the way it is designed, for singles wards/stakes or for normal wards/stakes. It just shows the actual standard leaders. All sorts of standard callings don't show up in the Leadership Directory, either -- it's not just the custom callings that are not listed there.
