Runners to the toe rail?

I am working on a plan for an inner head stay and runners for our I-28. Storm gear!

My question is about attaching the blocks for the runners directly to the toe rail. It is a heavy aluminum rail and would distribute the load wider than a dedicated pad eye could. It also allows adjustments to the location of the blocks. It offers an unobstructed range of locations.

Any thoughts?
