The reason to add LME last is because it's so heavy. LME will drop straight to the bottom no matter how well you're stirring, and if there's heat under it (which there will be during the boil) that instantly caramelizes a portion of the extract, which will increase nonfermentables in the wort and contribute a caramel taste.

Add your LME at the end, after flameout. Best of both worlds.

Ditto

Leave the immersion chiller in the wort while stirring in the LME.

Have a spare 5-gal bucket handy and fill it with the hot water from the chiller. PBW and all your tools goes in there for post-boil cleaning.
You can fill a second 5-gal pail for rinse water. All good!

I start with a 5-gal full boil and add maybe a quart or 1/2-gal to top off the fermenter.
