It is funny setting to have primary running on filesystem and standby running on raw, as Alex says; opposite will be much easier for you. just rman backup the datafile, copy (ftp/scp/rcp whatever) to standby host, and dd to the target raw device; if you have a tape that connect both prod/stby, just set new name for the datafile and restore it to raw device directly; v$datafile tell you everything. or alert log as you said; By the way, there is one flaw with your implementation.

you database is pretty stable in size so you can live with it. if db structure changes, standby will do that for you like resize, create the datafile etc. for datafile rename etc, you have to re-do manually.checkstandby manual for what is/what is not supported for standby.
