Sorry, I didn't understand your first question!
Regarding your 2nd question. You won't get compliant if you update your AV on a annually basis. You shall fail the quarter check done by an QSA(s). So first check is not available. For me if the companies staff is well educated and a we have a good IR team, plus the other goodies you mentioned, then for sure I shall go with selection #2 :)
I hate these rules, but really they are something enforced on us. And without them our business can't be done. Or does someone here suggest we close our shops/companies and go home just because we dislike/disagree/hate the PCI Compliance requirements?
I think that its not a bad to implement these requirements to get compliant by these companies, and then do what we think is the best. I.e, develop a more security policy to work on top of the PCI or vise versa. Get compliant then go further.
BTW: I hope your able to understand my point, as my English seems to be bad :(

Did you consider that an anti-virus may actually be the worst security
solution for certain threats because it allows companies not to think
about security while providing insufficient protection?
What's your choice:
Company A installs an anti-virus and updates it regularly (BTW regularly
includes once a year).
Company B has a recovery concept, incident response team, vulnerability
monitoring, patch management, NIDS, security training but no anti-virus.

No, I don't think so.
