If  they are not contributing financially to the wedding then I think you are being more than fair.

Don’t have her handing out programs or guest book attendant. They are tedious roles for young people.

By “Mom and Stepmom can be civil and polite”, is that a statement of fact, or a directive? If they don’t have a history of being civil and polite, put your dad/stepmom (and their relatives) at one table and your mom (and her relatives) at another. (That’s I’ve had to do with divorced parents).

Otherwise good! Though I would consider listing her in the program alongside your father as “father and stepmother of the bride”. I agree she’s more or less equivalent to an aunt. You might want a Maid/Matron of Honor or Bridesmaid or Best Man as a “door guard” to keep her out of the bridal suite!
