"mount" and "dd" is mutally exclusive.
dd writes to the raw device.

for mount, my attempt seems to be the only sensible.

what _could_ be possible, would be to feed the image via ssh to dd,  
somehow mirroring one of the proposed backup procedures:

ssh root at "mkfs.jffs2 -d /var/tmp/root -e 128 --pad  
--no-cleanmarkers -x lzo" | pv -W > rootfs.jffs2

here, on the fr a jffs2 image is created and written to the host. maybe  
with ssh or scp copying the image to the fr and making dd reading from the  
input could work -- but i really don't know.

but that suggestion to scp the image to the raw sd card sounds interesting  
-- or rather the claim to success.
