Well in all honesty It's not a bad idea to try it both ways, but I
think you're likely to run into problems either way because full
information ML is likely to be in deep trouble due to perfect
prediction, too. MPlus gives you more options given that you can use
Bayesian estimation and get away with models that are very close to
the model you want but not identified due to perfect prediction.
