A proper rode and anchor combination should give a nearly horizontal pull on the anchor shank at the recommended scope. Adding excessive scope should not make any difference. Furthermore, who has time for such additional operations when anchoring?

If it doesn't hold at 7:1 (or maybe less), then I'd do some serious thinking about why and re-rig ground tackle accordingly.
