I would recommend a buntline hitch instead... but I would point out that buntline hitches can become very difficult to untie if they're left in for any significant period of time, especially if left loaded for long periods of time.
.. and there's the thing with this "what-ever-it-is"... it's easy to release much like a bowline - and this is, of course, a line that can get quite heavily loaded from time to time!
