Unfortunately CM is out of reach for you. In order to run it you must have the MDK bootloader. It is the only one that can be exploited (via loki) to allow the installation of a custom recovery such as CWM or TWRP. Without one of those you cannot flash CM. Safestrap will not allow the use of CM.

Does that mean, if I Odin back MDK and take the Loki approach - can I install CM11 then?

You are unable to Odin back to MDK once you have upgraded.

This is correct. And if you do try at best the process will fail and you will reboot to where you were before, worse case you risk bricking your device.
