I used the miter method on my yellow shaker table that had dimensions similar to yours. There is a photo of the miter M&T. In the workshop where we did this, I asked about notch/lap. Opinion seem to be that miter was just a bit easier and you could easily adjust tenon length by trimming back the miter cut as may be necessary such as when the apron miters collide and push the opposite apron out. Simple fix by a trim. You could also pin with a dowel for a little added strength.

Since I haven’t tried the other types I toss this out from the whatever it’s worth dept.
