Sounds like the KISS Keep it simple principle to me. It is what I have done since day 1 with hank-ons and still do with the rollerfurler. My lines have not worn out yet and I have seperate blocks/tracks for jib vs genoa so I have to re-thread the sheets either way. They are not that expensive anyway.
