I have heard a 12-29 working on a bike with a short rear mech, so assume a 12-30 would be fine with a med rear mech?!

I have a medium that's running an 11-32 perfectly happily with a 50/34 front.

Yup (y)
I think it was a 12-30 I tried with a short cage mech, and it would reach on the workstand but was just too marginal in practice, especially for my CX.

Will work with medium cage 10 speed deraillure - or a 1st gen 11 speed short cage = yes.

Used 10 speed chorus shifters, 10 speed 12-30 Centaur casette & 11 speed 1st gen Chorus 11 speed rear deraullure (the last shiny one and 1st with oversized pullys) - using a 50/34t compact chainset mounted on a frame with a really short gear hanger (Merlin Works CR 3-2.5 from 2006 - still love that stiff 1100g titanium frame)
