I've never seen a mainsheet go thru a clutch - do the two lines share a singel winch? It would be surprising if this is the OEM setup - I would worry that someone might release the wrong line by mistake.
Unless it isi sharing a winch, I would lead the main sheet to a its own cleat of any type, my preferance would be a jam cleat.
Certified...in several regards...
