Modularly separating the design for mind and body in this way supposes
a) that it is possible, i.e., mind design does not lie athwart body
and brain design, and b), given that supposition, that the assumptions
you have made about the nature of the interface are workable.

A growing number of roboticists, AI researchers, and philosophers of
mind argue that mind design *does* lie athwart brain and body
design. If they're right your project is doomed.
