As long as the boat is sitting on an even keel, I don''t really see why one set of wires would be stressed more... Granted, if you have a weak hull, the decks might bulge out a little further on land than when she is in the water, but this ought to be minimal.
We never remove the mast for winter storage but always check wire tension when she goes back in the water (we have a cat, and one set of stays has to be disconnected to allow the storage hut to be assembled around the boat (see vonwentzel.net for details).
