That doesn't really apply here since the shower doesn't have it's own vent, though.

Up here, we're allowed to tie in a floor drain without it's own vent as long as it goes into a vented line and is within a certain distance of the vent on said vented line.

Doesn't apply to any other fixtures though.

If it were me, I'd fix it. Heck, you can even fix the radiant floor pipes if they get damaged, it's not really a big deal.

What about my wet venting question? Up here, you can't run horizontal dry vents. Not off trap arms for showers or whatever. Showers are virtually always wet vented by a lav, or in this case a sink. I'm not seeing a big deal here. It'll work just fine.
