This has been posted a couple of times in this thread:

"Airbus has developed a specific warning when one throttle is set to reverse
while the other is above idle. This warning generates an ECAM warning "ENG
x THR LEVER ABV IDLE", a continuous repetitive chime (CRC), and lights the
red master warning light. This new warning is implemented in the FWC
standard "H2F3".
A Service bulletin will be issued very soon on this subject. "

This should happen in Option 1, a bit of a stronger warning than just a message on the PFD.

I've understood it to be the case that Autothrust cancels when EITHER TL is moved to idle. (The supposition being that Eng 2 then accelerates to somewhere near climb power, based on TL position). Is this not the case?

Option 5 seems ideal.
