I just ordered the DXO One and thought about how to mount an optical viewfinder ( OVF) when using the camera in stand-alone mode.

This may or may nor work, but I have an Olympus clip-on OVF with a 35mm equivalent field of view (FOV). I ordered a lightening ( female ) adapter with a fairly wide body. I'll mount a cold hot shoe adapter to the lightening adapter angling it to a point in the distance ( probably 20 feet or so ) and gluing the cold shoe to the lightening adapter. Then I can mount my clip-on OVF into the lightening connector on the camera. It should be a low stress application since this set up will weigh less than an iPhone and the torquing forces should be quite low.

What do you think?

I've thought of the same thing. But I would opt for a 28mm instead and "crop" in the viewfinder.

If the OVF has a narrower angle of view than the camera, that leaves room for framing errors which is necessary since the 34mm field of view OVF as I have put together is off to the side of the camera lens.
If you use an OVF angle of view wider than the camera lens, there is a risk that your final image will appear mis-framed and some of the content will be missing.
