floating peel-and-stick-backed vinyl plank floor?

The slab in my 1960s rental home is rough, not smooth.

Peel and stick tile would most likely have very poor bonding.

What do you think about peel and stick resilient vinyl directly on a large sheet of Aquabar underlayment to make a floating floor?

I figure sticking vinyl planks to kraft/tar paper would eliminate any edges from popping up.

These 2mm lumber liquidators wood-look vinyl planks have the adhesive on the back, not on the edges like Allure or Armstrong Luxe.

I wonder if there will be shrinkage issues if 100% of the glue surface is stuck to the paper.

The unevenness will telegraph thru the vinyl. Use a floor leveling compound.
My electrical answers are based on 2014 NEC, you may have local amendments.
