So anything downstream of Pasteurized Cream in this chart should be alright? Obviously doing any of the derivation steps yourself is to be preferred where possible.

I think you'll have a harder time justifying butter in its various states than sour cream or mascarpone. Not that homemade butter wouldn't be appreciated, but you'd really have to work to sell it to the chefs if there was no other cream component there.

While cream contains butterfat it is the solution cream forms that makes it special. Things like mascarpone make the cut because they still embody the things that make cream special (or are formed by those properties). Butter has been modified from its original form too far to be acceptable as the component, at least as I see it.

I would stay in the "Cream products" section of that chart, and avoid the "Butter products"
