End for end splice

Any thoughts from experienced riggers on using an end for end splice (in double braid) to mount a snap for a genny sheet? On the surface it would be a very smooth, low obstruction attachment. However I''m concerned about forces being concentrated in the "Y" formed on the leward end of the active sheet and / or forces concentrating on only one leg of the splice.

Thanks
