Alternatively you could argue that Matthew has arranged the material at his

Indeed. A good case could be made that Matt 11:5, and its Isaian Vorlage, gives the ideological basis for Matthew's original narration of (those particular) miracles in Matt 8 and 9. Most of the miracle stories in these chapter are then developed dramatically and used by Mark in a secondary way, i.e. no longer as proofs of the Messianic identity of Jesus (which is already taken for granted in Mk 1:1) but because they can be told in such a way as to mirror the liberating power of Jesus as sacramentally encountered by Mark's (Gentile) Christian congregation (with even such clearly late features as an allusion to a Friday fast in Mk 2:20).
