Wireless HDMI is a solution to a worse case scenario, not one to be used lightly, and certainly is abysmal for gaming. There are many that use it without issue, but I've read several complaints about people using it and having issues. So, be aware that spending more for wireless HDMI may not give you any satisfaction in the setup.
I would measure several times on your distances to be sure what your lens to screen distance is.
As already point out, the W1070 is very close in size, and a good deal less expensive. You can always buy after-market HDMI wireless transmitters to try them out if you want.
I'm just not sure on this at all. I might go really short throw with the W1080ST, but the fact that you can't properly mount the projector is a real hassle. I understand there are times when renting that people don't want you ceiling mounting, but wall mounting is still not to allow, and if you actually are willing to patch and paint the ceiling then really - who cares? I mean, seriously, put something in writing to your landlord to make it official, and perhaps give them money that is specifically earmarked to that specific repair when you leave. I know when I rented in an apartment, they said flat out that painting and patching was a normal part of the move out process and I could mount my TV to the wall and projector to the ceiling and it would be taken care of.
But, as long as it IS taken care of... then who cares?
Of course, stucco/textured ceilings can't really be repaired easily.
