As far as legally, you are covered by the Law:

MGL - Chapter 90: Section 7. Brakes, braking systems, mufflers, horns, lights, audible warning systems, and other equipment; compliance with safety standards; stickers and emblems
"... Every motor vehicle shall be equipped with at least one mirror so placed and adjusted as to afford the operator a clear, reflected view of the highway to the rear and left side of the vehicle..."

Technically, your inside central rear view mirror is to the letter of the law Neil.

Besides, if you are pulled over, you can show the officer your Custom Aerodynamic Mirror-Emulating Replacement Armatures!

P.S. I would like to note that you could still keep the same angle and similar field of view and bring the CAMERAs closer to the body, just my $0.02.
