Pretty much (what I tried to describe, was your 3rd chart but at each move divide by the drawing probability. Minor difference, I think I like your 3rd chart better though)

The advantage over WDL is that you can very easily compare white and black winning probability (as distance above/below the x-axis).

Based on the 3rd chart, I also came to the conclusion, that they should be bars instead of graphs as just before move 40, where the evaluation flips, it looks like, there is a point where both have winning chances, however this does not seem to be the case.

Actually I think this is the point where I disagree with "score chart [...] conveys basically the same information". Your example is lacking a situation, where both white and black have decent winning chances. This is the whole point of alternative evaluations like WDL as the probability of the game ending in a draw and who is in favor are two theoretically independent pieces of information, which cannot be conveyed by just one graph-line.
