A racing friend pointed out some time ago that if at all possible it is best to attach the aft end of each jackline to a point further forward of the stern than the aft cleat. The idea is to prevent dragging behind the boat....
Also, on boats with transom mounted outboards, the thought of being suspended in the prop zone is just plain horible.
