Which of these would you XCE/Burner/5 Spot owners recommend?
For the 5 Spot and Burner - Front Derailleur Type: 34.9mm Top Pull Bottom Swing
I assume it's the same for the XCE.

Neither. It is like SilverSpot said, you need a top pull, bottom swing, with a 34.9mm clamp. It is best to avoid e-type ders when possible, and the top swing der you have pictured absolutely will not fit in any case (the CNC machined bb block is in the way). Spending $$ on a chi-chi front der is a total waste. There is really no functional difference between XTR and LX. Just a few (and I mean few) grams.

Buy a venerable XT for about $25.
