I had used the transactional interpretation to analyze your "stencil" scheme for nonlocal communication, and I had immediately seen the problem you mention. Without coincidences the "receiver" detector has no way of distinguishing entangled photons whose twins passed through the stencil from those whose photon twins stopped on the solid parts of the stencil, so no signal comes through. I was planning to write you and point this out.
I should also point out that my coincidence-free Dopfer gedankenexperiment is not affected by this.

OK folks I woke up this morning realizing why my particular scheme without the coincidence circuit won't work. Very simple, same reason as usual. The noise from the receiver photons entangled with those sender photons that are absorbed by the stencil barriers will destroy the local signal. Of course, in the usual way of nonlocal interferometry the signal can be reconstructed after the fact with a proper design using data transmitted from the sender in the usual way. The only other loop hole would be if there were advanced EM signals, but if there were we would not have to go to all this trouble.
