It's not my idea, really, it's how it's done in the Yak141 and I am sure in the actual F35 too. It allows the bearings to be round, the duct section to be constant and with no kinks, which makes it easier to seal the gaps. The actual plane has afterburners, and any leak in the ring bearings would be catastrophic. I can't think of a way that could protect the gear, really. It's bound to take a lot of bumps over time. Perhaps you could mount it to a sub-frame and tie that to the main structure with some generously sized rubber bands.

I love the nosewheel mechanism used on this (very small) B25 Mitchell. I think it would scale up nicely, while keeping quite light. Might be another job for the 3D printer?

You should commercialize the bearing swivel duct. I'll be the first to place an order. That's all I need to move forward on my project.

That's a nice idea, Joel, I know you planned to make the designs available to the public, but there might be also a market for a printed, assembled and tested unit. At least for a little while. Just make sure the markup is sufficient to cover the expenses plus the time spent on it, and high enough to keep orders manageable, especially if it's a weekends only job.
