I would go with the latter route, since the cart is able to accept these 
changes - qty changes are a no-brainer, they are already there.  For the 
modifiers, this is the syntax I am familiar with, I assume it still works, 
but I may be wrong:

[if-modifier color][item-accessories color][/if-modifier]
[if-modifier size][item-accessories size][/if-modifier]
