I've been interested in this kind of mooring too. It sure seems like it would be strong, with the anchors spread out and the right length of chain, each anchor can have a scope of nearly infinite-to-1 with the chains essentially laying on the bottom back to a central point. You'd be hard pressed to pull something like that free if the anchors are set well. Seems like you could set each anchor separately then dive on the mooring and connect the three anchor rodes at the point that gave you the best scope, then run your chain from the center. Also seems like this would be a place where the more anchors you have, the merrier, how about six instead of three ?

What are you pretending not to know ?
