Dan, I owned a smaller sloop which had all lines led to the cockpit. There were turning blocks on the mast for the halyards, they belayed to cleats on the cabintop. It was very handy, I sailed her without an engine. There's no real downside unless you need a winch for your halyards, even that could be mounted on the cabin. Just be sure you use proper backing.
