Yes you've got the concept down pat.  Rohn is only requiring an L shaped 
rebar cage along the top and tower side faces.  You've also determined 
the problem in how does one construct that and hold it in place during 
concrete pouring.  What I did was to fashion the L shaped sections and I 
dropped "legs" down from the back side of the top face and ended those 
onto concrete bricks with a short hole partially drilled into it to hold 
the leg in place.  They never moved during my pour.  Also you are 
correct you need min 2 inches of concrete cover over the rebar; none of 
the bar should be sticking out of the concrete or else it will corrode 
sooner than you want.
