I vote (R). I really like not having to search around for the figures, and having no captions if there is no need for them is also cleaner.
I think you will find that the readers of your papers will greatly appreciate the figures, even though you could get away without them, and their locality.

However, I have a slight beef with the margins.
I think margins themself are a slightly archane. I would guess they appeared because ancient printers had difficulty printing on the entire page. I know when I write (with pen) I don’t leave margins.

My point is that, if the margins are there for a reason, then obey them. So I would suggest staying out of the margins if they exist, or making them smaller if you think they are too big.
