While it is true you'd have to pump the waste out of the tank, the real advantage of plumbing the head with no direct discharge is that it simplifies the plumbing and reduces the number of hoses in which waste can sit and permeate the hoses.
Your setup will also require TWO VENTED LOOPS, one for the holding tank discharge line and one for the head discharge line, unless you put the vented loop after the Mk V diaphragm pump, in which case the pump and most of the line up to the vent will have waste sitting for long periods of time and increase the probability of problems with the pump clogging.
If you put the vented loops on each line, then you'll have a lot of hose that has waste sitting in it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
