Looks fine to me. You should see how my friend has his wheel set up. He has road wheels converted to fixed using the Surly "Fixer" and then he has bolt on quick release. AND he rides brakeless. (this is all on a blue NJS Bridgestone as well) lol.

I see what you're saying, since it's not a fixie frame. Yes it's a solid bolt on with alen bolt. See my Motobecane, that one I use a stock road bike wheel, which needed a derailleur to keep the wheel from coming loose. Anyway, props on your collection and respect for doing it right.

Like I said, I built this bike 5 years ago. I also put more money in it than I usually like to on a conversion, with those new wheels. I'm not a noobie at bikes, in fact I'm a pretty oldie and those type of axles were new to me then and may still be something people use today. All I know is someone else built the wheels and I got them on eBay. I don't even remember the name of the hubs. But I saw your bikes MKTNG and you look like you've invested plenty. I personally would be happy with regular nuts as long as the wheel stays on :)
