Would it make sense to do the same setup as Bruce Abbot proposed (first regulator and then balancer/protection board), but to use a charging circuit like BC3770 instead of using a regulator?

The BC3770 would (as far as I understood) have sufficient power to charge all the 4 cells and it would be a lot "smarter" than just a regulator (trickle charge for deeply empty batteries, top up charge etc.)

Datasheet:
